            Dear students and parents,

              I hope this note finds you well and having had a relaxing and enjoyable summer!  You have risen to the challenge of virtual learning this past spring and we are so pleased to begin a new academic year with you!

             I am the support teacher for seventh grade Team Blue. As a member of the Team Blue staff, I will be co-teaching with your child's mainstream teachers. For those students enrolled in Study Skills class, instruction will reinforce the concepts studied in the content areas as well as emphasize the skills for academic success. I am so thrilled to co-teach Study Skills this year with Mrs. Melanie Samayoa. Mrs. Lisa DeNorscia will also be joining us to provide invaluable academic support.

             I believe in educating the "whole child," academically, emotionally and socially, as well as helping to instill self-confidence in each of my students. By all accounts, Tenafly Middle School is a warm progressive community of learning. I consider it a privilege to serve its students. 

             Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns, via e-mail, at atrochanowski@tenafly.k12.nj.us and msamayoa@tenafly.k12.nj.us. 

            To the left, you will notice links to our four academic courses. Please visit the site often to access study guides, graphic organizers, vocabulary flashcards, answer keys and mroe! We look forward to a unique but wonderful and successful academic year with you and your child!

    Together, we are Tenafly Strong! 

    Ms. Amy Trochanowski and Ms. Melanie Samayoa
