Q and A with Mrs. Amurao
What do you love most about Teaching?
I love working with kids, I love learning and I love math. Teaching gives me the opportunity to do all these every day. My kids bring a lot of energy and enthusiasm into our everyday learning. We do a lot of math games and activities and I feel blessed that my kids are always eager to learn and willing to try. I learn from them as much as they learn from me. I do not think I will ever tire of teaching math concepts and skills to these young minds.
Is there a group of students or a class period that you are particularly proud of and would like to Honor?
I am very proud of my 6th and 7th graders. They come to school every day ready to learn and do their best. I know that math is not the easiest subject to some of them, but they still persevere and keep on trying. They work extremely hard and I feel blessed to have them as my students.
