     My name is Barbara Scioscia-Reed.  In school the children call me Mrs. Reed.  I'm delighted to have been teaching at the Academy since 1993.  For the first 11 years, I taught 3rd and 4th grades  reading, writing, and social studies.  I also served as  a town literacy leader.   In 2002 , I began teaching Reading, Writing, and Social Studies for 5th and 6th graders in The Advanced Learning Program. Presently, I also teach writing to 4th graders in ALP.   I continue working  to promote literacy with active involvement Family Literacy Programs.   In 2003, I had the honor of being named Teacher of the Year for the town of Stratford. 
Philosophy:  I feel driven to teach!  I love working with children and helping them make connections.  My goal is to empower children with a confidence in their own ability to acquire knowledge.  Prior to becoming a teacher, I worked as a professional artist.   I feel my experiences of being an artist has taught me the importance of allowing and encouraging students to utilize their creative talents to express their ideas, both academically  and personally.
