Miss Pinto here!
I am a special education teacher who is always looking for new and innovative ways to reach my students. I am just beginning my sixth year as a teacher, prior to getting appointed I subbed while going to graduate school full time. I have a huge background in the special education world and I hold this population near and dear to my heart. I have been working with special education students since 2010, where I began as a counselor and worked my way up the rank to Program Coordinator all throughout college.
I have always been passionate about teaching because I was lucky enough to have had some great teachers who inspired me to be my best and to work hard. They also taught me that I can achieve anything when I set a goal and I have set many goals. I hope that I have instilled the same work ethic in my students. I aspire to continue pushing my students to past their limits and to reach their goals.
When I am not teaching, you can catch me watching sports, at the gym, playing sports or working at my brothers’ pizzeria! Basketball is my favorite sport which is why you will find me coaching the basketball team at PS 115.
I look forward to being my best and doing my best in order to get the BEST from the students at PS115.
