Mrs. Michelle R. Hall (Manzella)
Currently, I teach third-grade in a monolingual classroom at D'Youville Porter Campus School #3 on the West side of Buffalo in New York. I have been teaching in the city of Buffalo since 2007. I graduated from Canisius College in 2006 with an undergraduate degree in Early Childhood Education with a concentration in Science. I am certified to teach grades 1-6. Next, I received my Master's degree from Buffalo State College and majored in Technology in Education. My life is great and I am happily married with one child. I have a lot of interests and hobbies. I'm a lifelong learner. Currently, I am studying how to: play ukulele and piano, read, write and speak in Italian and Spanish, and also practice more American Sign Language (ASL). I started learning ASL in 2017 when my son was born 12 weeks early, as a way to prepare to communicate with him when he was a baby. I have found that it's been very helpful in my teaching as well. The students seem to understand what I'm saying more when I add signs and gestures to my lessons. Also, I am an amateur artist, I love to read, and do yoga. I consider myself an advocate for peace among the world. As an environmental crusader, I am the proud founder and lead gardner for the HOPE Garden at School #3. Be sure to check out the new beautiful mural on your way out to see what's growing in the garden.
H.O.P.E. stands for helping other people everywhere. The link for the YOUTUBE Channel for HOPE Garden is posted below.

Welcome to 3rd Grade!
I will be spending some time getting everything together but would appreciate any suggestions along the way.
There are many areas to the website that I know you will find great value in. My goal is to make the website not just a tool for me, as the teacher, to connect with parents, but also a learning tool and resource for the students.
