Hello!  I'm Catherine Cabral and am the LD Special Education teacher.  I teach K-2nd (Reading, Writing, and Math) and 3rd (Reading, Writing).  This is my 1st year at Fitzgerald but my 6th year in PWCS.  Before moving here to VA, I taught 4th grade (3 years) and K-3 Special Education (8 years) in CT.  I live with my husband and 2 kids and love to run!  I am really looking forward to working with you and your child this year.

06/08: Remember to check the grade level folders under Files and Documents.  Look for the "Week of 6/8" folders for Resources and optional activities that correspond with the activities on the grade level lesson plans.  My weekly office hours are Wednesday from 10:00-11:00 am (please email to set up an appointment at that time, if needed).  I am always available (outside of office hours) on my school email (carbrac@pwcs.edu) and my Class DoJo page.  Hope everyone is staying safe and healthy! Have a great last week of school! I miss you all!

04/10: I have and will be collaborating with the grade level teachers each week about the lesson plans that are going out each week.  Please check the Files/Documents section on this page each week.  In each grade level folder, there will be a folder labeled with the current week. In that folder will be resources, videos, and/or optional activities that are related to the grade level weekly lessons to provide more support and/or practice.  If there are passages or text that the grade levels are using that are not available in read aloud form, I will have a link posted of me reading it, too.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions.  My weekly office hours will be on Wednesdays from 10:00 am-11:00 am (please email me to set up an appointment at that time if needed).  I am also always available (outside of that hour) on my school email and Class DoJo page.  

04/01:  Hope you all are continuing to be safe and healthy!  I have been updating the Files and Documents all throughout the week with videos and resources.  Please feel free to contact me through Class DoJo or email if you have any questions or need any other resources.  

3/30: Check the Files/Documents section for weekly activities and resources.  There are also some videos I made showing some strategies we have learned (and I will upload more this week).  If you need books for your children to read, they now have access to MyOn through their accounts on Clever.  I can direct you to ones at their reading levels if you would like to have books for them to practice their reading strategies (you can have them mute the reading or not hit Play and read on their own) or they can choose books at any level to listen to and practice comprehension strategies.  

During this time away from school, please feel free to contact me at any time if you have questions, concerns, need ideas on activities, or just want to check in.  You can message me on Class DoJo or school email (carbrac@pwcs.edu).  I have created folders under Files and Documents where I have posted what we have been working on this year.  I will post ideas of (optional) activities that you and your child can do at home.  I will add to each it week.  If you complete any activities, feel free to send a picture or bring them to school when we return!  I miss all my students- tell them I said "hi" and can't wait to see them again!
