I’m Debbie Petronglo and I have been employed by Deerfield Township School since September of 1978. I am currently the Basic Skills/ In Class Support Teacher for Kindergarten (Reading and Math), Second Grade (Mrs. Lopergolo/Language Arts), Third Grade (Ms. Morris/Language Arts and Math), Fourth Grade (Mrs. Sharkey/Math) and Fifth Grade (Mr. Sharkey/Math). I have attended numerous workshops throughout my career to help improve and enhance the curriculum taught in the primary grades.
I believe our effectiveness as educators is directly related to how well we understand our students. Let’s always keep in mind the developmental stages that our students experience, both in the classroom and at home. We have a tremendous responsibility to instill a love for learning into each of our students.
