    Bridget Bellizia Bridget Bellizia - Math

    Hi! I'm Bridget Bellizia! I am SO excited to be working with second grade students this year!

    I am new to the Essex Westford School District this year, but have taught various grade levels for more than 20 years in public and private school settings.  
     
    For the past decade, I worked as a fourth grade teacher at Cambridge Elementary School.  I especially love to teach Math! In 2018, I received my Masters of Science for Teaching from the Vermont Mathematics Initiative through U.V.M..
     
    I loved this program and enjoyed having a chance to hone my teaching skills as a math and reading interventionist during the 2019-20 school year, switching to teaching remotely in the spring.
     
    This year I will begin the school year as the remote second grade math teacher in the mornings and finish off the school day as the second grade math coach in the afternoons! 
     
    When I'm not teaching I love to hike, do yoga, ski and paddle board with my husband and two teenage kids. I also love animals and can’t wait to share some funny stories about my 8 chickens and two black labs, Angus and new puppy, Rosie!

What to Expect with SeeSaw

  • All students will have a synchronus lesson at a common time in the morning. Synchronus means students will engage in course activities at a specific date/time. This means everyone will be required to be online for this as it is a daily, scheduled event.

    Attendence is how we ensure participation and learning is taking place. Students will work primarily in SeeSaw, which is a learning application. A teacher will send an invitation with a link, in an email to families. Watch the video below to learn more.

    Assignments will be given through the app. When the teacher posts something new in SeeSaw, families can be notified via app notification, email or SMS. Watch the video below to see how to help your child set up SeeSaw for their learning.
