About the Teacher

My name is Emeliza Ciavarro. I have been teaching for 20 years. After graduating from Swarthmore College, I taught 5th-8th grade English and history at the Springside School for Girls in Philadelphia. I then taught 5th grade for one year at Bedford Middle School in Westport, CT. Fortunately, I have spent the last 15 years teaching fifth grade in Wayland and have earned a Master of Education degree from Lesley University.

Working closely with parents, I believe that all of my students can achieve success. I strive to create a classroom in which my students have the following beliefs:

I believe I belong.

I believe I can do it.

I believe I matter.

I believe I can handle what comes.

I look forward to a great year!!
