Welcome to Mrs. Marano's Explorations Site (K-3, + 4BAK, 4PAR, and 4McN)
    Hello! My name is Mrs. Marano. I am so excited to be teaching Explorations again this year! I am teaching Explorations to grades K through 3,  along with three of the 4th grade sections (Baker, Pardo, and McNamara). We will be exploring Science and Social Studies topics in grades K-3. 4th grade will be learning Social Studies in Explorations and have Science with their Math teachers.
    This is my fourth year teaching Explorations at McKinley, my fifth year in the district, and my sixth year teaching. I LOVE teaching Explorations, with it's varied topics and hands-on experience for kids. The curriculum is rigorous, but students generally enjoy the challenge! Your child will be bringing home study guides throughout the year as they prepare to show their learning on unit assessments.
    I am from the small town of Watertown, Minnesota, and now live in Isanti with my husband. When not teaching, I enjoy horseback riding, going to church, reading, and hiking in the mountains whenever I get the chance!
    Thank you for supporting your student(s) and their learning! Your home support is invaluable to your student(s) as they grow in their knowledge and skills!
