Welcome to First Grade at Meadowland with Mrs. Adra
Dear Parents and Students,
Welcome to the 2020-21 school year! I can't believe I am beginning my 16th year here at Meadowland. It seems like just yesterday that I began my career at this amazing school! This year will look quite different for all of you and for me. I have been teaching English learners for the past 27 years. This year I will be a classroom teacher in first grade. I am excited about working with the first grade team this year, and look forward to the challenge of reaching my students in a distance learning setting.
I was born and raised in Pennsylvania, but spent 15 years in Illinois where I taught EL learners at the middle school level. I have truly found my passion, though, in teaching elementary school students. I have three sons. My oldest is a senior in college and my youngest is a senior in high school. I enjoy reading, baking, and exercising, as well as spending time with my family in Pennsylvania. I also enjoy writing, and my dream is to publish a children's book.
I am truly looking forward to working with your children this year. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
