Mr. DeLoma 2020 - 2021
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.
