Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Gina Spears
Hello! Welcome to the wonderful world of kindergarten! My name is Mrs. Spears and I will have the pleasure of being your kindergarten teacher this year. This will be my sixth year at Van Derveer and I absolutely love being a part of the Somerville community! I cannot wait to get to know you and wanted to share a little bit about me.
I was born and raised in New Jersey and am an only child, so I am very close to my extended family. Spending time with my family is one of my favorite things to do! I also love to dance and teach Zumba® in my free time. Disney World, listening to music and going on outdoor adventures are a few of my other favorite things.
In August 2013, I received my master’s degree from Syracuse University in Early Childhood and Special Education to compliment my undergraduate degree in Inclusive Elementary and Special Education. Go Orange! During my years at Syracuse, I was able to teach students of all ages, but eventually found my love- Kindergarten!
I am excited to get to know you and your family and hope that we can all work together throughout your year in my class. To let your family know about our class, I will send home notes and newsletters, make phones calls, and email to share any important information about our class. Our classroom is also connected to Twitter and I frequently post reminders, pictures of classroom activities and helpful links. Follow me @MrsSpears7718 to stay up-to-date throughout the year.
I am so excited to be your kindergarten teacher and for you to be my student! This is going to be a year filled with wonderful experiences and opportunities for you to learn and grow!
