Theresa Ferrante

Welcome to B-3's web page! I have been teaching here at Del Rey Woods for over 25 years. Most of that time teaching second grade. Before that, I taught first and second grades at Marina Del Mar, where I student taught and was hired for my first teaching assignment.

Born and raised in Monterey, I am proud to say I am a product of MPUSD.

When I'm not on campus, I'm usually with my two Cocker Spaniels, Mele and Meika.

Favorite subject/thing to teach?

I enjoy teaching CHILDREN! I love to see students light-up when they realize they can read or they can solve a math problem on their own. Every day is new, and there's never a dull moment.

2nd Grade

Most memorable experience at Del Rey Woods?

Some fun memories involved putting on the production of Little Red Riding Hood. I can still picture various students, playing the part of grandma, hunched over, wobbling with their cane. It was soooo much work: painting scenery, teaching the songs ... but so much fun!

Favorite book?

There are so many great books, it's hard to choose. Some of my favorites to read aloud are the Ramona books by Beverly Cleary. She is always good for a laugh.
