Teacher Feature on Ms. Fornataro


Kevin Clark, Staff Writer

What school do you teach at? 

I teach second grade at Chipperfield Elementary School.

What is your favorite part about teaching? 

 The most enjoyable part of teaching for me is building a classroom community of respect and love.  Each year, it is important that our classroom becomes a welcoming place for students who love being there. 

What is the best lesson you have ever taught?

 A favorite part of teaching is when I see my students engaged and excited about learning. 

Sometimes, the best lessons come out of teachable moments that aren’t always perfectly planned, but evolve around student needs or a fantastic idea/thought that emerges along the way.
