Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Joanna Dobransky
I moved from New York to Connecticut in 2006, and I love it here! I've been teaching for 18 years. I started out as a Pre-K teacher and gradually moved up every year. I have been teaching 5th grade for 12 years! 5th grade is the best grade to teach. Participating in book clubs and reading discussions are so engaging and fun. I love to share my enthusiasm with my students. My favorite series is the Harry Potter series. I've read each book at least four times! I've also been to the park when it first opened and loved all the rides. At home, I have two children and two dogs. My son is five years old, and his name is Anthony. He is starting kindergarten this year! My daughter is three years old, and her name is Madelyn. She just started pre-k and loves it! It is a very busy house. My husband, Chris Dobransky, is a PE teacher. We love to go to Yankee games and Sound Tiger games. We can't wait to bring Anthony and Madelyn to more baseball and hockey games! We took Anthony and Madelyn to Candlewood Lake a lot this summer. They are becoming amazing swimmers!
