Hello 3rd graders! I am Mrs. Alcantara and I will be your teacher this year!
This is my eighth year in 3rd grade. I previously taught 4th grade ILA. I love teaching
reading and math. In reading, I love mystery book clubs where I can become a detective and
solve the case using clues that I found. I also love reading fiction stories because they are
exciting! Fiction takes you to faraway lands. I like being able to escape to different places
in my mind, especially places that don't really exist (like Hogwarts!).
I love teaching, but I also love doing many different activities as well. I like reading at the
beach. It is so relaxing and peaceful! Sometimes I get so lost in my stories that I can read for hours!
I also love to spend time with my family. My husband and I like to go to the movies and try new and different
activities, like zip lining, bike riding, and shopping. I have a 5-year-old son named Jackson, who keeps
me very busy! I also have a baby girl, Janie, who will be one in September. I have a cat at home named Babies.
He likes to snuggle and eat!
I can't wait to hear about all of the activities that you like to do. We are going to have a great year at Frost!
