Hi, welcome to Class 3-1! My name is Joanne Tucci and I am so happy to be working with your third grader this year. This is my 7th year teaching at LBCRS. As a former LBCRS graduate, it is so much fun to be teaching 3rd grade in MY old 3rd grade classroom. I feel truly blessed to work in such a wonderful place!
I received a Bachelor's Degree in Business Management from Pace University, and worked for several years in the hospitality industry in NYC. I went on to earn my Master's Degree in Early Childhood Education and Special Education from Touro College.
This year we will be studying and experiencing many new and exciting things. Third grade is one of my favorite years because of the transition from the development of skills to the development of independence. I personally love to see my students begin to assume responsibility for their education and become life-long learners.
I love to spend time with my husband and four children (Christian, 21; Robbie, 20; Julia, 18; Gregory, 15). We enjoy traveling, spending time outdoors, playing volleyball in our pool, and going to the beach.
Lastly, I believe that a successful year starts with an open communication line between parents and teachers. Please feel free to call or email me anytime you have concerns. :)
