    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.  


    Mrs. Adra
