    Welcome to Second Grade at Meadowland with Mrs. Adra

    Dear Parents and Students,

          Welcome to the 2022-23 school year!   I can't believe I am beginning my 18th year here at Meadowland.  It seems like just yesterday that I began my career at this amazing school!  I have been teaching English learners for the past 29 years.  This year I will be co-teaching with Mrs. Allway in 2nd grade.  I am excited about working with the second grade team this year, and look forward to working with this year's second graders.

           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, one who lives in Arlington and two who are in college.  I enjoy reading, baking, and walking, 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.  


    Mrs. Adra
