Welcome to the 6th Grade Garnet TeamMy name is Mrs. Premus and I will be your Math teacher.  I am very excited to meet all of you and help you grow as mathematical problem solvers and thinkers. Sixth grade is such an exciting time in your life. Now, you will be able to switch classes, work with several amazing teachers, make new friends, and become part of a team.  The most important thing that I want you to learn this year is that each and every one of you is a unique and valuable human being. So you owe it to yourself to work hard and try your very best every day! 

A long, long time ago....I graduated from Boston College, with a degree in Elementary Education. In fact, that's where I met my husband, Joe. We just celebrated our 29th anniversary this summer! After graduating in 1987, I began my teaching career at Lake Garda School, where I taught fourth and then fifth grade until March, 1995 when I left to have our first child, Julia (now 24). It was during those years at Lake Garda that I earned a Masters Degree in Educational Media from Central Connecticut State University. In October, 1996, our daughter, Olivia (now 22), arrived, followed by our son, Andrew (now 20), in August, 1999. After staying home to raise our 3 "babies, I returned to Region 10 in 2010 to teach fifth grade at Har-Bur, on the Turquoise Team, where I stayed for 2 years. In 2012, I "graduated" to 6th grade as the Language Arts teacher on the Emerald Team. In 2016, I made the switch to the Garnet Team, continuing to teach Language Arts for 3 more years.

This school year, I am thrilled to begin a new adventure as the Garnet Team Math teacher! Let's have an awesome year!
