Welcome

 TO 6th Grade at Notre Dame Academy!

I am Mrs. Lynch and I love teaching Reading and Language Arts at Notre Dame Academy! This is my third year teaching at NDA. I received my bachelor of arts degrees in English Literature and Theatre Arts from Salve Regina University in Newport, Rhode Island. I also received my MSEd from the University of Bridgeport. While raising my family, I worked as a freelance copywriter, editor and proofreader. Much of my work was within the educational publishing industry.  I always knew I wanted to be back in the classroom. I am so grateful to be part of the dynamic and committed team at Notre Dame Academy. I am inspired by my students and colleagues every day!

NDA has implemented a very exciting new Reading and Writing curriculum this year based on the Teachers College Reading and Writing Project developed by Lucy Calkins at Columbia University. Additionally, we focus on vocabulary development, grammar and spelling. We partner with Classroom, Inc. to enhance our reading and literacy program through the use of technology and assessment. It  allows for differentiation, enrichment and is overall a very powerful tool for teachers and students. Looking forward to an amazing 2019-2020 school year!
