Mrs. Rubino's 1st Grade


I have been teaching 1st Grade at Visitation Academy for the past 18 years, as well as 20 years experience in finance. I have a Bachelor of Science in Finance/Marketing from Fordham University, a MBA in Finance from Manhattan College and a MA in Elementary Educuation K - 8 from St. Peter's University.

I look forward to a fun filled learning experience with your children. Keep in mind that First grade is a milestone and a key grade. It is an introduction to formal academic studies and a life-long journey of learning .

As a teacher my goals are:

-to encourage children to express themselves freely and to be risk takers.

-to build self esteem and an atmosphere for learning in a non-threatening environment.

To teach childern:

-in religion that God loves them and that as Christians they are members of God’s family.

-to speak and eventually to write in complete sentences using basic spelling words of mostly one syllable.

-to read stories with repetitive vocabulary and gradually move to stories with increased and varied vocabulary.

-to understand basic numbers and place value in mathematics. Also to learn basic addition, subtraction, money, time and measurement.

-to appreciate themselves as members of a diverse community with common needs and wants.

-to observe the world of living things and how things move in science by using their 5 senses.

Please feel free to contact me at any time if you have any questions, comments, or concerns. You can send a note with your child or email me at .
