Hello parents and students!
The 2019-2020 school year will mark the start of Mrs. Ganguli's 7th year in this wonderful and diverse Pioneer family!
Mrs. Ganguli was born and raised in Mumbai, India and has lived in northern Virginia since the year 2000. She holds two Master's degrees, one in Applied Microbiology from India and the second in Environmental Science and Public Policy from George Mason University, Fairfax, Virginia. She has also completed all but dissertation requirements for a doctoral degree in Environmental Science and Public Policy. After working for more than eight years as an environmental consultant/scientist and project manager, Mrs. Ganguli completed the Career Switcher program at Shenandoah University in June 2012.
This year, Mrs. Ganguli will be teaching 6th grade Science. Students will inquire, discover, reflect and learn about matter, energy, space, weather and so much more! Students will also learn to read, understand and summarize scientific text, and hone their observation skills. In addition to science, Mrs. Ganguli will be co-teaching the AVID elective class with Mrs. Latourrette (Room A14). AVID stands for Advancement Via Individual Determination. This is her 4th year coteaching AVID. She is excited to work with motivated 7th and 8th grade AVID students who will learn how to be better note-takers, organizers and collaboraters. They will take learn the importance of giving back via community service, to be responsible for their own learning and build a path that will lead them to fulfill their college dreams in the years ahead.
Mrs. Ganguli encourages parents to take an active role in their child's education. Please email her with questions, comments or concerns at firstname.lastname@example.org and she will respond as soon as possible. She is also available after school (by appointment) for extra help.
