Welcome to Ms. Thorp's Website!Hi! Thank you for stopping by my site. My name is Ms. Thorp, and I am thrilled to be teaching Sixth Grade ELA and Social Studies on the Blue Team in VCMS!I am a certified general education, special education, and literacy instruction teacher. I received my Bachelor's Degree in Social Science with a concentration in History and Political Science from Mount Saint Mary College. I also received my Master's Degree in Literacy from Mount Saint Mary College.
I have been teaching in Valley Central School District for fourteen years. My career began when I was a sixth grade collaborative teacher in the Middle School. After that, I taught in a special class setting for sixth, seventh, and eighth grade students. In addition, I had a wonderful experience teaching Second Grade for one year in Berea Elementary School. I am very excited to be in the Middle School teaching Sixth Grade ELA and Social Studies!In my free time, I enjoy reading. Some of my favorite books are the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling, My Side of the Mountain by Jean Craighead George, and Out of the Dust by Karen Hesse. I also love reading nonfiction books, especially if they're about sports or American history. I'd love to discuss your favorite books! I am also a big sports fan; I love the NY Giants and the Yankees! Are you a sports fan? Let's talk! Traveling the world is something I love to do as well. So far I have been to Canada, Iceland, Ireland, and Scotland. Do you have any good recommendations for other travel destinations? Finally, I really enjoy spending time with my dog, Jack. He has quite a personality! Do you have any pets? I'd love to hear about them!
I am very much looking forward to getting to know you. Don't hesitate to call or email me if you have any questions. Let's have a great year together!
