About the Teacher

  • Mrs. Manna-De Chiara’s teaching philosophy is that all children can learn. The best learning takes place during the interactions that occur between the teacher and the students. She teaches because she loves to learn. Her goal is to build on the foundations that are intrinsic in each of her students, whether they are English speaking, English Language Learners, students possessing an Individualized Educational Plan (IEP) or culturally diverse. The personal experiences and previous knowledge that children bring to the classroom initiate the most fulfilling lessons.  Additionally, she believes that learning is cumulative and that every connection that is made during instruction adds one more slide to the PowerPoint in the child’s mind
