Mrs. Laura Santimauro
I am Mrs. Santimauro! This year marks my eighth year teaching 7th grade at Roosevelt! Math has always been a passion of mine and I hope that after this year, I can convince you that math really isn't that bad!! Many moons ago, I received my Bachelor's Degree from Manhattan College in Mathematics and Secondary Education. When I was there, I minored in Computer Science and Spanish, managed the radio station, sang in the choir, and participated in many volunteer activities. More recently, I completed my Master's Degree in Mathematics at Montclair State. A little over a year ago, my husband and I got the puppy of our dreams...a Newfoundland puppy, who we named Shelby! We started training her from day one and it is our hope that soon, she will be a therapy dog so we can bring her to hospitals, schools, and nursing homes to brighten people's day! Besides playing with and training Shelby, I like going hiking, cycling, playing the guitar, singing, and gardening! I am very much looking forward to this school year and cannot wait to get to know you better!
As students growing up in a world where technology changes everyday, I believe it is very important to integrate many different forms of technology into my lessons and activities. On the left side of this page, please visit my class website to view everything you need to know about my class! On that site, I include homework, test and quiz dates, study topics, class documents and worksheets, resource links, a link to my Google Classroom, and much, much more! I will be referring to this site very often in class, so I encourage you to make it one of your favorite bookmarks on your computer!
