Welcome to 6th Grade!

August 25, 2020 by Victoria Ponessa

Hello 6th Grade Families!

Wish we were learning here this year!

My name is Victoria Ponessa and I will be your child’s sixth grade homeroom teacher. I will be teaching projects (science) to all 5th/6th cohorts. This is my second year at Oasis Academy, and my eighth year in the classroom.  I have taught a variety of grade levels between second and sixth grade.  I received my degree in Inclusive Education from Syracuse University in New York, and earned a Masters Degree in Literacy Education B-6 from SUNY New Paltz. I am also almost finished with my Masters program in Educational Leadership from Sierra Nevada University.  I am originally from Newburgh, New York, and as a military spouse I have been fortunate enough to have taught in New York,  California, Japan, and now Nevada.  I am blessed to announce that my husband and I are expecting our first child this October.  I welcome your questions, concerns and help in making sure your children have a year of growth and learning that is fulfilling in spite of the ongoing pandemic.

This year, we will be moving away from the blogs.  From here on out, please refer to the Google Classroom Parent Portal for classroom updates from each of the four 5th/6th grade teachers.  Parent Portal Code- hrauuoe
