Meet Miss Anthony

 

Tell me about yourself.

I graduated from the University of Maine at Augusta in December of 2014. I have been working in RSU13 as a substitute throughout my whole college career. I even student taught here in the Fall of 2014 in the second grade. After student teaching I was a long term sub in the Castles program and am excited to have a full time job as a teacher here!

 

Why do you like teaching third grade?

I really like how independent 3rd graders are becoming at this grade level. It’s a great age to start organizational skills and responsibility.

 

What are your favorite student units?

My favorite student unit to teach my students is multiplication and the fairy tale unit. I have always believed that multiplication is a very great skill for students to have. I love the tricks you can teach your students for multiplication. The fairy tale unit is really cool as well. I love teaching all the different elements of a fairy tale. 

 

What is your plan for parent contact plan?

In my 3rd grade class we have a M.O.O.S.E binder. In the binder there is a spot specifically for parent communication. Also email is another great way for parents to contact me. My e-mail is banthony@rsu13.org        

  

What are your homework guidelines?

In my students M.O.O.S.E binder there is a spot for their homework. Also the students have a planner where they write their homework in everyday to remind them and their parents what is for homework each night. Homework varies every night except for reading. The students are required to read for a minimum of 15 minutes every night. They are to record their times that they have read in their monthly reading log.
