Miss Femia


Welcome to Elementary Reading at Bretton Woods!

My name is Miss Femia, and this is my 4th year in Hauppauge. I will be teaching guided reading and phonics for grades 1-5; including the programs Just Words, and a Wilson Practicum. I am very passionate about reading and literacy development, and I hope to share that passion with you this school year. Here are some fun facts about me:

1. My favorite book is The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton. 

2. I can speak Italian and Spanish. 

3. I have a dog named Zeus! He likes when I read with him. 


"Have Courage, and Be Kind."
