Congratulations to November's Teacher of the Month, Hilary Ciaravino! Ms. Ciaravino was nominated by new World Languages teacher, Shannan Meilunas. Here is what Mrs. Meilunas had to say: I am a new teacher and she has been absolutely amazing. 1. She checks on me constantly during her free periods to make sure things are going okay and to update me on things I might have missed in my email. 2. She helps me with lesson planning and lets me know her schedule for the week so that we are teaching the same topics from the curriculum maps at the same time. 3. She is always lending a hand, making me feel better, and helping me to acclimate to M-E 4. She is an amazing teacher. Her students love her. Her lessons are fun, engaging, and align with the standards. It is great to see her in action. She cares about her students and knows best how to teach them French and Spanish.
