Welcome to 3rd Grade

 

Mrs. Doukali-3rd Grade-Room 203

Dear Parents and Students,
 
I want to welcome you to third grade at Horace Mann Elementary School! I am so excited to get started!  I hope you had a fun, relaxing summer and are ready to begin.
 
First, let me tell you a little bit about myself. I received my B.A degree in Elementary Education from Saint Peter's University. I also obtained a double master's degree in Early Childhood Education and Educational Leadership K-12th, and currently working towards obtaining a Doctorate in Educational Leadership K-12th through Saint Peter's University. I have been teaching for 15 years and  most of my teaching experience has been in Early Childhood grade levels. I taught at Hoboken School District for 11 years and North Bergen School District for 4 years. I enjoy reading, cooking and spending time with my family.
I have been married to my husband Issam Doukali for 14 years. He is a Detective, and we have 4 children consisting of ages 14, 11, 9 and 6.
My philosophy of teaching is to treat my classroom as a home and the class as my extended family.  I try to make each child feel welcomed, accepted and excited about learning.  I feel very strongly about keeping the lines of communication open between home and school. So I hope to hear from you.
 
The CODE for our Google Classroom is YZPJ4OW.
 
Extra Help will be held on Thursday's at 8 am.
 
If you will be attending extra help,  Please bring in a note on the prior day.
