Dear Parent (s),

   Welcome to Norwood Public School!  My name is Mr. Mauro De Santis, and I will be your child’s English-As-A-Second-Language (ESL) Language Teacher.  I was raised here, in New Jersey, and attended William Paterson University upon high school graduation.  Soon thereafter I completed my graduate work at New Jersey City University where I received an ESL Teacher's Certificate and a Masters Degree in Linguistics.  My Native Language is Italian.  I entered New Jersey Public Schools as an ESL student at the age of five and received two years of ESL services.
   I look forward to a great time learning with your child.

   Your child will learn by practice, practice, practice. Students will also exercise strategies, and work in groups to understand the importance of writing and its daily application.

   As a parent, you are the most important person in your child’s life, and we must work collaboratively for your child’s benefit. I need your support for homework completion, accomplishment of academic goals, and enforcement of classroom discipline policy. You may be informed about your child’s progress via emails, phone calls, conferences, grade reports, and other forms of communication.  For our joint effort, I know your child will experience a successful and memorable year.

   I look forward to meeting you personally.  Your correspondence is welcomed.  (201) 768-6363 – NPS Front Office.
