Meet the Teacher
My name is Ms. Lamendola, this is my second year at Visitation Academy, and my fourth year teaching Pre-K 4. I am very eager, and cannot wait to get to know you, and your child!
I have always had a passion for teaching, and a love for children. I earned my teaching degree and Montclair State University, and additionally received a minor in dance. I enjoy teaching and learning through music, dance, singing, and play. It is my goal to create a warm, loving, and safe environment for your child. In my class your child will always feel valued, important, and respected.
During these important years of age 4-5 your child is forming ideas, learning about themselves, creating important friendships, and becoming more independent. In order to create that environment it is so important to have open communication between home, and school. Do not hesitate to speak to me, email, or send a note into school. I do not give out my phone number, if there is an emergency please call the main office, and they will get the message to me.
I am always available for you, and your child. I usually arrive to school around 7:30am, and I am available to meet before students start arriving in the morning, once students begin to arrive it is important for me to start the day with them. If you cannot meet before school I am available after school. Please email me to make an appointment.
Remember you are your child's first teacher, I want to work together as a team to allow your child to learn and grow as much as possible. Let's make this an amazing year, and get your child Kindergarten ready!
Sincerely, Ms. Shannon Lamendola
