Mrs. Ferrara


My name is Andrea Ferrara. I have worked in Hicksville since 1994. I worked as a teacher assistant at Fork Lane for 2 years, then I taught 1st grade at Lee Avenue for 2 years. I came to East Street when we re-opened in 1998 and I've been here ever since!

First grade is an exciting year, filled with growth and wonderful experiences! The children come to me in September from kindergarten, and leave in June as second graders. It's amazing to see how much they learn and mature.

My goal is to build a strong foundation of good work habits. Our classroom has daily routines, where the children know what to do and what is expected of them.

I will respond to you within 24 hours. If you need to tell me about a change in your child's dismissal, please donot use email. Instead, write me a note and place it in your child's homework folder.

I'm looking forward to a great year with your child!
