Hello! My name is Gisselle Martinez. I completed my elementary and high school education in Union City. I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education and minor in Psychology from Saint Peter's University.  It is an honor to now be teaching in the same district that provided me with such a great education. I earned my Masters from New Jersey City University in Urban Education with an ESL Certification and Bilingual Certification.  This will be my eleventh year teaching third grade.  I believe that a child’s success in education comes from everyone working together with the child's best interest at heart.  It is an honor for me to be a part of your child's education and I look forward to working together in order to provide the best education possible.

Classroom Procedures and Policies

School Folders - Every Friday your child will bring home a folder with all of their graded work and important information. Please take a few minutes to review the papers and comments, sign and date it, and return it to school with your child on Monday.

Homework - Check your child's planner and/or classroom website for daily homework. Students should not take longer than 30 minutes to complete homework.

Assessment, Test and Quizzes- Every Friday students will take a reading comprehension and vocabulary test on the story of the week. Math test will be announced a week in advanced as they are given at the end of each chapter. I will review with students at school and give them ample notice so they have time to review the material at home.
