Welcome Letter

  • Hello and Welcome!

           My name is Mrs. Rosa and I am the Math Support Teacher at Hillery Park. This will be my 4th year teaching in the Buffalo School District. I was born and raised right here in South Buffalo, and am very excited to be working with the student's at Hillery Park. 

     In our Math Intervention class we will be utilizing the Engage New York Math curriculumn, while supplementing with lessons created by me using theories based on  Van De Wall's Elementary and Middle School Mathematics: Teaching Developmentally. 

          As a parent myself, I encourage you to have fun with math at home with your child. Set aside 30 minutes each evening for playing math games online, using flash cards, roll dice to practice fluency skills. When a child can relate "fun" with math, their anxiety with this subject area decreases. Please check my "Math Websites" link for websites and printable games for you to play at home.

         Please feel free to contact me through email should you have any concerns. Thank you again for all your hard work and your support as you are your students primary educator.
