Welcome to the 4th grade classroom at St. Mary’s School. My name is Ms. Trainor and this is my 11th year of teaching at St. Mary‘s.
I received my MA in Dance Movement Therapy from Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado, and my MST in Childhood Education from SUNY Potsdam. I have taught students for over 35 years in a variety of settings; including educational, recreational and therapeutic venues.
I have participated as a traveling scholar in two National Endowment for the Humanities Landmarks of American History and Culture Workshops in 2009 and 2010 and I work at integrating the “Arts” into the curriculum as well as providing opportunities for “Problem Based Learning” in the classroom.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you have regarding the Common Core Curriculum or your child as we work together on the education of your child. email@example.com.
