Hello Math Science Academy Families,
My name is Jill Wolni and I am your child’s Social Studies teacher. I want to extend to you and your child my warmest welcome into my classroom. This is my tenth year teaching in the Harrisburg School District. I have taught 5th grade, for six and a half years, at Camp Curtin School. I have also taught 5th grade Language Arts and Social Studies at Marshall School for a year. This is my third full year at MMSA and I am very excited about working with your child this year!
I believe that every child is unique and learns in a different way. My job, as a teacher, is to help your child discover his or her academic strength and work alongside your child to maximize it. Also, your child and I will uncover any academic struggle that he or she may have and set goals to help turn any struggle into a success. I believe in hands-on experiences, learning creatively and cooperatively. My goal to create a classroom community of learners who are committed to working up to expectations and having fun. I want my students to leave my classroom everyday with the ability to apply what they’ve learned to real-life situations. Also, I want to challenged all students in a way that enhances their passion for learning.
I firmly believe that collaboration, cooperation, and open communication between home and school are key to building a strong foundation for a successful school year. Please feel free to email or call me with any questions, concerns or successes you would like to share with me this year.
Ms. Jill Wolni
