All About Miss Duquette
All About Miss Duquette
My name is Miss Alyssa Duquette, and I am from Goshen, Connecticut. I attended college in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts at Boston College where I received both my Bachelors degree in Human Development and Mathematics/Computer Science as well as my Masters degree in Elementary Education. It was also where I acquired my love for the Boston Red Sox, lobster, and football!
While at Boston College, I was able to work with students in a number of different settings, including an after-school program, a school for students with severe behavioral and emotional needs, and two different elementary schools at which I completed my student teaching. Each and every one of these experiences made me a better teacher, and made me love teaching and working with students even more!
After graduating from BC in May of 2010, I became the Academic Support Paraprofessional for Mathematics at The Botelle School in Norfolk, CT. I worked at Botelle for two years helping students with their mathematics skills and working in a number of different grades and classrooms. In 2012 I began my first year here at Colebrook Consolidated School teaching fifth grade, and in my second year transitioned to team teaching fifth and sixth grade with Mrs. Ellison. I have enjoyed focusing on math, science, and social studies this past year and can't wait to do it again for 2014-2015!
When I teach, just like when I learn, I really love to engage in hands-on experiments and other meaningful learning activities. I plan to bring a lot of these kinds of activities into my classroom, and am looking forward to teaching and learning with all of my students!
Can't wait to see you at school,
1. I LOVE dogs! My family has a chocolate labrador retriever named Hunter and I recently adopted a crazy beagle mix puppy named Truman who keeps me on my toes!
2. My favorite color is purple, but I also really like lime green, teal, and cobalt blue.
3. I am left-handed.
4. I went to college in Boston, so I love the Boston Red Sox!
5. My favorite sport is football, and my favorite teams are the Patriots, the Packers, and the Falcons. I like the Packers and the Falcons because Matt Ryan and B.J. Raji are two football players that I went to school with at BC!
6. I have a sister who also teaches fifth grade! She teaches in Litchfield.
7. My favorite number is 7!
