Mrs. Guidoboni strives to provide an environment of peace and understanding in her classroom so her children feel safe and comfortable as they work to their full potential. She feels each child is special and her role is to discover the way that each child learns best and use strategies that work. “As a teacher who has taught for many years, I continue to love my job. I am most proud of my first graders at the end of each school year when I realize how far they have come and that I was actually part of their progress.”
