Mrs. Termanini is entering Becton Regional High School as the new Special Education teacher for math.

The new instructor was born and raised in Syria, and while living there, she attended Aleppo University. During her time at Aleppo University, she studied to receive her Bachelor’s Degree in Education in Mathematics.

Mrs. Termanini received a teaching certificate in Special Education at William Paterson University in Wayne, New Jersey. Furthermore, she has been teaching math for ten years at the high school level and as an adjunct professor at Passaic County Community College.

Being a mother helped the new teacher understand that some students struggle and need extra time and help. She is aware that every adolescent learns at his or her own pace and has a different approach to learning information; some like to take notes while some prefer just to listen.

She noticed how the students at Becton all have a different learning strategy, which she likes. Some attributes she wants to bring to her classroom are to help students with their note-taking skills and supply them with some attention strategies.

The courses Mrs. Termanini teaches include Algebra 1, Algebra 2, and Geometry. “My goal is to ensure that every student receives a quality education so they are enriched and thriving,” she said.

What the new special education instructor loves about Becton the most is how organized everything is and the way the school functions.

During her free time, Mrs. Termanini enjoys reading, traveling, going to the gym and spending time with her family.
