About Miss Ferrentino
Here is a little bit about myself, your 5th grade teacher!
About me: I grew up in Cheektowaga, New York. I have two sisters, one older (Lauren) and one younger (Courtney)! I come from a family full of teachers, so I like to think that being a teacher is in my blood! I currently have three cats, who are like my children. One is named Junie (Yes, like Junie B. Jones, my favorite book as a kid) Tinkie, and Daisy.
Education: Cheektowaga Central ('09), Buffalo State College Undergrad ('14), and Buffalo State College Masters ('16)
Teaching Experience: I am so excited to be approaching my 5th year here at Alden Intermediate. I am eager and ready to meet all of you!! When I became a certified teacher, I instantly got into many schools as a substitute teacher. After subbing for a few months, I was offered a long-term teaching job at Union East Elementary in Cheektowaga. There I taught reading AIS for about 4 months! I taught kindergarten, 2nd, and 4th graders reading! After that, I returned as a teacher's aide in a second-grade classroom for about 2 months! Then, I was offered yet another long-term job, but this time as a 4th-grade special education teacher! Over the summer I looked to go on many interviews and came across one here at Alden Intermediate.. and well you know how that turned out! I am so happy to be teaching 5th grade again with all of you!
Hobbies/Interests: Shopping, reading, being with my family & friends, coloring-just to name a few!
