Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year. I am Mrs. Favello, and I am excited to welcome your child to my ESL classes at Bassick. Students in my class enjoy learning through a variety of ways. We write, recite; we draw; we move; we even sing sometimes. We create: projects, games, books, drama, posters, pamphlets, maps, charts, polls. We give speeches and make presentations. We read and write and talk and listen, with one another and with other classes and staff, growing more and more comfortable with English every day.
I love teaching in Bridgeport. I hold master's degrees in Special Education and ESOL/Multicultural Education. I earned my Associate of Arts degree at Housatonic Community College,my Bachelor of Arts at New York University,and both of my master's at Southern Connecticut State University. I also earned an administrative certificate at Sacred Heart University. I have been teaching for 32 years, 27 of them for Bridgeport Public Schools, the last three here at Bassick - the place I love most of all! I'm sure when you get to know us, you and your child will love our school, too.
I look forward to meeting you and your child soon. Feel free to contact me at any time.
