2x2=4, 4x4=16. Meet the new 3rd grade teacher Ms.Magee, who is teaching multiplication and much more.
Mauro-Sheridan has a new face in third grade! Mrs. Cheryl Magee is very excited for her first ever teaching position here at MASH, and we had the good fortune to be able to ask her a bit about her new job. Here goes!
When asked what she liked about MASH, Mrs. Magee said that she loves the staff here, and that the librarian is very helpful. She also thinks the school is very clean. Mrs. Magee thinks that the 3 B’s (Be Safe, Be Respectful, Be Responsible) are very good rules for this school. Her favorite part about teaching is the planning, and also seeing the kids expressions when they are learning.
She said that if there was anything that she didn’t like about MASH, it was the fact that we had Pre-K through eighth grade in the same school. Also, she doesn’t like dealing with behavior problems.
Mrs. Magee got both her undergraduate degree in History and her graduate degree in Elementary Education at Southern Connecticut State University. Her favorite subject was always Social Studies. She had a GPA of 3.97!
After finishing school, she worked at Walgreens as a certified pharmacy technician. She always wanted to be either a teacher or a police officer. Mrs. Magee didn’t end up having a career in law enforcement. “I’ve never been a very good runner,” she told the MASH News. “There was a lot of that required, so I went with my other thing.”
In her free time, Mrs. Magee likes to spend time with her husband Bryan, and her daughter Kylie, who is two years old. Kylie likes to read (the pictures), play board games, and watch Paw Patrol. Mrs. Magee also enjoys watching Law and Order, and reading mystery books. She also likes the Harry Potter series.
Mrs. Magee told us that she thinks that the most important things for a third grader to learn are good reading skills. A good principle, we agree!
Mrs. Magee informed the MASH News Staff that the third grade curriculum no longer includes writing in cursive (lucky third graders!). She also allows her students 20 minutes of recess.
When the MASH News staff asked Mrs. Magee why she chose third grade to teach, she responded “Third grade is where my heart is.”
And that’s the scoop from the MASH News today, folks. Mrs. Magee, welcome to Mauro-Sheridan!
