Hello! My name is Alicia Penta, but my current students call me Miss Penta. I work as a 7th grade inclusion special education teacher, and I have been for 4 years. I love working with my students because everyone needs a cheerleader, and I am able to do that for them! I teach math, science, ELA, and Ancient Civ, I can tutor any subject, besides foreign language. The biggest takeaways I want my students to have when they leave the 7th grade is confidence and the ability to use strategies to help them be successful.

Verna and our son hit it off right away. They literally got to work within two minutes. Our son enjoys learning, and Verna has been a good fit. He has only had two sessions, but felt that both were beneficial and helped him to better grasp this difficult content.
