Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Carrie Rooney
I feel very lucky to be teaching third grade at Hillside School. I am someone who loves to learn. As a teacher, I hope to share my enthusiasm for learning new information, problem solving, and looking at the world around us with curiosity and wonder. I truly enjoy teaching and look at each new school year as a journey with my students.
I have an undergraduate degree in Chemistry and a Masters in Education. Prior to teaching I had jobs in corporate marketing for a fashion company in New York City , internal auditing for a large bank, and the laboratory. I am the mother of four children, two boys and two girls. These life experiences are part of who I am, and I believe they enrich my approach to teaching and the classroom.
Third grade is awesome! Students begin to become more independent and responsible learners. I look forward to guiding my students toward positive growth academically, socially, and emotionally.
