Hi! My name is Mrs. Vandale and I am one of the second grade teachers at Island Avenue School. This will be my 14th year of teaching and my 2nd year at Island Avenue. I have taught first, second, third and fourth grade throughout my teaching career thus far! I love teaching and watching little minds shape and mold into wonderful readers, writers and mathematicians. I just love it when the light bulb turns on because a student "gets it". My goal is to always create a fun and safe learning environment for your children and to get them ready for third grade! Thank you in advance for helping to make this a great year!
