My Name is Miss DiMarzio and I am so happy and excited to have you in my class! I am looking forward to a challenging and fun-filled year. Sixth and Seventh Grade is an exciting time as students embark upon new adventures in the world of learning. This is a year of important transitions, as well as one in which the aquisition of new skills is accelerated. I hope to instill a love of learning that will last throughout your child's years of schooling and adulthood.
It is extremely important to keep in mind that we will build upon small successes. Each child will progress at his/her own rate, aquiring new skills as he/she is developmentally ready. Therefore, maintaining each child's self-esteem and building a secure foundation for future growth will always remain a priority in our classroom. I am looking forward to working with your child this year and helping him/her acheive their fullest potential. I believe that each child is a unique individual who needs a secure, caring, stimulating atmosphere in which to grow and mature emotionally, intellectually, physically, and socially. It is my desire as an educator to help students meet their fullest potential in these areas by providing an environment that is safe, supports risk-taking, and invites sharing of ideas.
I look forward to this fabulous year ahead and working with you to achieve great success! Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any further questions or concerns.
