Hello Future Kindergartener! I hope you are enjoying your summer! 



   My name is Mrs. Somohano and I am going to be your Kindergarten teacher! This is my 14th year teaching at Haskell Elementary School. I have a bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Elementary Education from William Paterson University. I am also a mother of two children, Stella who is 8 and Mateo who is 5.  

    I really love being a kindergarten teacher! I am very happy to be working with your child.  I am confident my educational background, experience, and passion for teaching will provide your child with a positive atmosphere for learning and growth. I look forward to learning with you! 



Here are a few of my favorite things:


Food: pizza 

Book: A Bad Case of Stripes by David Shannon


Color: yellow


Season: summer


Sport: baseball

Animal: dog


Hobbies: spending time with my kids & reading






I want to make you aware that all district teachers will be using Google Classroom this year. Your parents will be receiving an email from your homeroom teacher by Friday, September 4th, which will give you my Google Classroom code, as well as the codes for all your teachers’ Google Classrooms, including all Special Area classes.  When you receive the codes, you will need to "join" all the various classes. (Instructions will be sent to families along with the codes.)


If you or your family are not familiar with Google Classroom, it may be a good idea to start exploring and familiarizing yourself with how it works so that we are good to go on Tuesday, September 8th! (There will be a workshop for parents the week of September 8th too!  See below for schedule.)
