ELA Department Head/Middle School Teacher
Pamela Morganelli has been part of the World Academy team for well over eighteen years. For the first six years, she taught Kindergarten. Currently, she is our ELA Department Head, in addition to teaching upper level English Language Arts classes and American Studies. She is a graduate of Stetson University with a Bachelor of Arts in Education. In 2011, she graduated from New England College with a Masters of Education in Literacy and Language Arts and became a very vital part of our World Academy Middle School.
Mrs. Morganelli currently lives in Greenfield, New Hampshire with her husband Al, and her daughter Paige, who along with her son Max, attended World Academy as students! Pam has a dog and two cats and enjoys reading, sewing, quilting, and shopping adventures with her daughter.
Over the course of nearly twenty years of teaching Mrs. Morganelli has grown as a teacher. A teacher, she feels, should first, and foremost, be a student. As such, Pam has an innate sense of wonder and curiosity which she strives to foster in her students. Mrs. Morganelli feels that everyone is a lifelong learner and must constantly seek opportunities to read and understand new ideas and information. She endeavors to make her classroom a place to read things each person enjoys, to learn through a wide variety of sources, to safely make mistakes, and a place for everyone to find a personal identity as a writer. She fosters self-advocacy and communication between her students and herself, and with their parents. Her goal is to help each student find his/her own voice, not only in asking for help but to advocate for what is needed to learn the best. She uses all learning modalities in her classroom to help her students understand their own personal learning styles.
She is the teacher students remember forever as being their most favorite, and they come back year after year to visit with her to share their successes. She is just the ultimate educator!! We are so lucky she is in our ‘World!”
