Mrs. Amato

I am going to be your third grade teacher!  This will be my 23rd year teaching and my 14th year at School 81.  I love teaching and watching minds shape and mold into readers, writers, mathmaticians, and scientists.  My favorite part is when the light bulb turns on because a student gets it!

Fast Facts About Me:

  • I am a mother to a high school senior son, an adult step-daughter, a goldendoodle named Lola, and an outdoor cat named Caramel.
  • I love chocolate and watching movies.
  • My hobbies are reading and traveling with my family.
Fast Facts About My Third Grade Class:
  • Our classroom is located on the second floor in room 204.
  • This is the coteaching classroom.  That means your child is lucky to have two teachers!  
  • Mrs. McCabe and I work closely together to ensure our students are successful!
  • Please feel free to contact me by email at
  • I use to teach the EngageNY math lessons.
  • Attendance is extremely important.  I believe that third graders should miss less than 5 days a year.  (Save them for when you are really sick!)
  • Reading and studying math facts every night is just as important as eating healthy!
