    Welcome to Mrs. Virelles' Class of Learning
    Dear Parents and Guardians,
         Albert Einstein once said, "You can live your life as if nothing is a miracle or everthing is a miracle."  My life has been nothing short of destiny playing out what I have always been meant to do, which is to inspire young minds. I attended Georgian Court University and graduated with honors in the areas of special and general education. For the last sixteen years, I have educated students at Brookside and Woodland Elementary Schools in Monroe Township, New Jersey. In my years in the district, I have taught grades 3, 4, 5, and 6 along with self-contained, resource center, and in-class support.  As my students have grown I have taken courses to continue my education in the areas of reading and writer's workshop, pearson success for mathmatics, applied behavior analysis, positive behavior support, iPad, Steam, and google suites to name a few.  However, the most significant training I receive is from you and your children.  The children are my greatest teachers since individualized instruction is critical to success.  Most importantly, using the child's strengths to assist with overall growth help the children with self-concept and the love of learning. In final analysis, I am looking forward to working with your children this school year. 
    For this school year, I am excited to work with Mrs. Maricondi in order to help every child grow.  We will be working with the children all day in the areas of science, enrichment, and health (marking period one).  Furthermore, in the area of social studies I will be traveling with your children to teach social studies with Mrs. Towne.  
    I will be sending home a packet that explains my procedures, rules, and policies.  Please look for this in the upcoming days. 
    At the beginning of the school year, I will sign homework assignment pads so students and parents feel confident in their knowledge of our homework.  Each child in my reading, language, and math classes may receive different assignments.  Please ensure parents and students look at the assignment pads each night.  If you have any questions please feel free to e-mail me. 
    As time marches on, I will continue to update my math, reading, and language arts pages based on the curriculum with games for your child to practice at home. Lastly, please see my calendar for upcoming school events.
