Welcome to Mrs. Meccariello's Page!
2021-2022 School Year
My name is Mrs. Meccariello and I'm a reading teacher at Forest Brook Elementary School. I have also taught in Bretton Woods and Pines. Prior to my employment in the Hauppauge School District, I taught first grade for several years. Reading has always been a passion of mine since beginning my career in education. My goal as an educator is to create life long learners through the love of reading. I believe that reading should not be presented as a chore but offered as a gift. It is important to me that my students are motivated, engaged, and confident. I enjoy incorporating engaging instruction to all of my students and love to watch them progress throughout the year. My favorite book is Chrysanthemum by Kevin Henkes. I love reading this book on the first day of school to remind students that although we may feel different, we are all special in our own unique ways!
