Meet Your Teacher!
        My name is Kirstyn Scaperrotta and I am so lucky to be your child’s teacher this year! I
am very excited to get to know you, and I would like to introduce myself. This is my second year
working here at Johnson Elementary School and my fourth year teaching second grade! This will
be my 10th year teaching. I graduated from Florida Southern College in 2007 and since then
have taught students ranging from age 3 through 11. I have worked in both public and private
schools in Florida, New Jersey, New York, and here in Vermont!

        One of my favorite things to do is to teach kids at Johnson Elementary School, but when
I'm not in the classroom there are many other things I love to do. I love to be outside. Hiking,
canoeing, gardening, skiing, exploring, and walking my dog Toby are just a few of the best parts
of living in the mountains. I am also an avid traveler. This summer I was lucky to visit several
National Parks across 22 states. We are so fortunate to share such a beautiful and diverse
country with so many incredible places to explore, yet I am glad to be back home.

        I'm very excited for the new school year at JES! Teaching is my passion, and it stems
directly from my love for children and the belief that every child has the potential to achieve
greatness in his or her own way. It is with the highest concern for the childrens’ best interests
that I conduct myself, my lessons, and the classroom environment. I believe that every child
deserves the greatest education possible and that classroom activities should foster a love for
learning that goes beyond academics. I spark my students’ inherent curiosity by providing
opportunities to express themselves and their learning in many diverse ways, and I place a large
focus on building real-world connections to academic instruction. I also foster the students’
confidence and self-regulation skills by providing exercises that help build an awareness of their
emotional and physical states. I put my heart into creating a classroom where all children feel
safe, valued, respected, appropriately challenged, and- of course- happy!

        I am always eager to support you and your child should you have any concerns. You may
contact me via email: I do my best to respond within 24 hours. You
may also call the classroom: (802) 635-2211 X 301. I do not take calls during the “kid’s time”,
which is between 7am – 3pm, but I will return any messages in a timely manner. I am glad to
meet with you- about anything- during a time that works best for everyone. As I cannot
guarantee to be available to meet before or after school, I ask for prior notice if you would like
to have a meeting.

        With friendly thanks and best wishes,
                                            Ms. Scaperrotta
