Welcome to Room 103! My name is Mrs. Mallios and I have been teaching at the James Otis School for 24 years. In first grade we will blossom into amazing readers, writers and mathematicians.
My husband, Stephen and I have three wonderful young adult children. Our family has a dog name Maggie. I enjoy going to the beach in the Summer months. I enjoy watching football and basketbal! Most of all I enjoy spending time with my family.
My favorite children's book is "I'll Love You Forever"!
One of my favorite teachers quotes is "Teachers Who Love Teaching ,...teach children to love learning."
I am so excited to be teaching 1st grade SEI at the at the James Otis! My name is Deana Fetherston and this will be my 3rd year teaching First Grade. I love teaching first grade and look forward to helping my students develop new skills while keeping learning fun and engaging. When I am not in the classroom I love to spend time with my baby girl Nina, my family and my friends.
Hello, I am Ms. Smith and I am so excited for my first year teaching at the Otis! Prior to the Otis, I worked in a first grade classroom in Roxbury as well as in a Special Education setting in San Diego! I love teaching first grade and working with students to build a love of reading, writing and math that they can carry with them into the rest of their academic careers. I look forward to building relationships with my students and their families. When I'm not at school, I love going to the beach, cooking and spending time with my friends and family!
