I call my students "my kids" because in our year together they aren't just kids on my class list, they become a part of my heart!"
Welcome Kindergarten families.
My name is Christina Volpe and this is my 19th year teaching at LBCRS. It felt like home as soon as I walked through the door. This is my 6th year teaching Kindergarten and I spent 13 years teaching 2nd grade. I also teach Reading Title 1 to 2nd and 3rd graders.
I knew from the time I was 5 years old I wanted to be a teacher. I would sit and play school with my grandfather for hours on end. I never questioned or thought about any other career. I take this profession seriously, as I know how what an important job it is entrusting your child to me. I know I am teaching your whole world!!!!
I have an AS degree in Early Childhood from SUNY Farmingdale, a BA is Elementary Education and an MA in Literacy Education K-12 from Dowling College. My goal is to one day earn a special education degree.
In my spare time, I like to read, walk and do crafts. This summer, I was fortunate to go with my whole family to Turks and Caicos. I have 2 daughters who are 5 and 9.
I am looking forward to a wonderful year.
