Mrs. Toscano's Class
About Mrs. Toscano
My name is Kelly Toscano and I have the honor of teaching your children this year. One aspect of teaching that I appreciate is each September symbolizes a fresh start and the promise of new adventures. I am very excited about the upcoming year and look forward to meeting my new students.
This year marks my 21st year at Bret Harte. I spent 12 years teaching second grade before moving up to third. Bret Harte has truly become my home away from home. When I am not at school, you can find me in Marlton where I live with my husband and daughter, Hayden, who is going to be in 4thgrade.
My mission is to create a positive, nurturing environment that will help your sons and daughters grow socially, emotionally and academically. I believe that intelligence and ability are not fixed traits or that one is born with only so much of them. Rather, with support, effort and perseverance all students are capable of academic achievement. When students embrace the “growth mindset” they fear making mistakes less and are willing to take more risks.
