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.
