Mrs. Diane Voltolina
Welcome to 3V! I am looking forward to being your Third-Grade teacher! I hope you are as excited as I am to be back in school!
I have been teaching third grade at Mackay School since 2003. I began my career as a preschool teacher and have taught kindergarten through fourth grade, and Basic Skills K-6, in both private and public schools.
I have three children of my own, Teddy, Lisa, and Andrea AND I am a grandma to James (age 2) and Joseph (almost 1 month)! My favorite thing to do is spend time with my husband and our family!
This school year will be very different for all of us, but by working together we will have an amazing year! We will be learning a lot of new and interesting things this year. In Math, we will become multiplication masters! We’ll also learn about place value, measurement, geometry, fractions, problem solving, and a whole lot more. I hope you have been practicing your addition and subtraction facts! We are going to be reading many interesting books this year. We’ll be writing narratives, essays, and nonfiction pieces. In Social Studies, we will study Conflict Resolution, Explorers, and Colonial Times. Our Science Units will have us investigating Weather and Climate, Food Chains, and Forces & Motion. We will also spend time learning how to write in cursive and use the Chromebooks.
I know that sounds like a lot of work, but we will have so much fun that you won’t even notice! I hope you are ready for an exciting year! I can't wait to meet you!
