Hello My Name Is...

Ms. Abbott


About Me: 

Hello! My name is Ms. Abbott and I am so excited that this is my first year teaching at Shady Brook Elementary! I am originally from Buffalo, New York and just moved to Kannapolis in August.

Colleges Attended/Degrees Earned:

State University of New York- The College at Brockport
Bachelors Degree in English 

Educational Philosophy:

I believe that given the right resources, all children are capable of having success in school. I aim to incorporate different styles of teaching and different methods of learning in my classroom. I want students to learn from me, from their peers, from themselves and from their environment. I want students to focus on a deeper comprehension of what they learn in school as opposed to memorization of facts. 

What We Are Learning:
In math, we are reviewing complex multiplication and division strategies using the standard algorithms. We are beginning to learn about adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing with fractions!

In science, we are finishing our unit on matter and energy. Students have been learning about the properties of solids, liquids and gases and types of heat transfer. Starting now and continuing after winter break, students will learn all about weather!

In English Language Arts, students are working on skills such as summarizing, finding main ideas and supporting details, and identifying themes. 

In Social Studies, students are learning about the explorers and their impact on the development of the New World. 

We are also writing a research paper based on a personally selected American historical figure. Thank you to all the parents who came to our "living museum". We had a great time sharing our learning.
