Mrs. Joan Sciarrino
I am extremely excited to start my 12th year teaching and be here at Bywood Elementary School. Fifth grade is an exciting year for your child. It is their last year in elementary school. The 5th-grade team works hard to make it a memorable time for you and your child. I will do my best to meet each learner's needs, which often looks different for each student. Two years ago, I introduced flexible seating in my classroom, and the students absolutely loved it. For this to be a successful experience, the students MUST take ownership of their learning environment. This teaches them to be responsible for their own belongings and their classroom environment as a whole. The students learn to share with their peers and be mindful of each learning style. This flexible seating arrangement is given freely to each student at the beginning of the year and is a continually earned privilege. I firmly believe that an open communication line between myself, the student, and the parent is the key to a successful year. Hopefully, if we can get through this pandemic, we will be able to utilize the flexible seating this year. I can most easily be reached through email firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 610-352-6842.
