Integrated History and English
My name is Alexandria Aiello and I am teaching 8th grade integrated Language Arts/ Social Science and Speech and Debate. I have been in the education field for seven years and have taught in three countries. I am proud to be a BMS Bulldog!
My goal for all of my students is that they develop skills that will make them better students and citizens. I focus on problem solving and civic duties in all of my lessons. My favorite quote is from Margaret Mead “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” I want all of my students to be thoughtful and committed to their passions and strive to foster that in my classroom.
I am also thrilled to bring competative Sppech and Debate to the centeral valley. Our program is charted trhough the National Speech and Debate Association (NSDA) and is the only program offered at the middle school level in the central valley. Over the course of the semester, all students will earn meritt levels through the NSDA and have the oppertunity to earn national recogantion and scholarships. Public speaking is a life long skill that empowers studnets to excel in any aspect of their life. Welcome Barking Bulldogs speech and debate team!
