Mr. DeLoma 2021-22

Welcome to my webpage!  It is important that my students develop, nurture, and maintain the essential habits of mind associated with reading critically, listening closely, and responding thoughtfully (both written & verbal).  My students are expected to think deeply about their learning and learning goals.  In addition, they should be able to cite reading & writing strategies from their repertoire, while being able to explain how they are being applied.  This is especially important when learning within a one-on-one conference and/or small group setting.  In essence, students need to be paying attention to the "current moment" while living a "wide awake life!"  My interests outside of school include a personal ongoing journey with jazz, blues & classic rock guitar.  I am also an avid sports enthusiast - both active and passive.  I possess great respect and admiration for animals, and am fascinated with the beauty, grandeur, and mystique embedded throughout all nature.
