Hi Otis families, my name is Mari-joy Eisele. I have been teaching at the James Otis for 6 years and each year is better than the one before. I teach 5th grade and truly enjoy watching our students grow. My favorite books are mysteries. When I am not at school I love to be home with my family. I have a wonderful husband, 3 busy boys, and a wild chocolate Labrador Retriever.
Hi! I am Ms. Hyland, and I am a fifth grade teacher. This is my seventh year teaching at the James Otis and my fourth year in fifth grade. I teach reading and social studies to all the fifth grade students. I love learning more about teaching and how I can best serve the students in front of me. My favorite part of my job is watching students become independent learners who pursue their own interests. Outside of teaching I love spending time with my family and going to the beach. My favorite book is Out of the Dust by Karen Hesse. I look forward to learning more about you and what books you love!
