Mrs. D'Esposito (Ritter)

Welcome to Our Class! 

Hello third grade students and families! I am so excited for the 23-24 school year, and can't wait to work together to make this year the best year yet!  

A little about me and our class:

My name is Mrs. D'Esposito (but a lot of school communication may say Ritter). I was married this year, and am working to transition everything to my married name. This will be my 5th year at West, but my 7th year as a classroom teacher. I graduated from Marist College with dual degrees in Psychology and Special Education, as well as a minor in Hudson River Valley Regional Studies. I went on to complete my Master's Degree in Homeland Security and Emergency Management, emphasizing school violence prevention and school safety. 

My primary goal is to provide a safe, dynamic, positive, and engaging learning environment for students. Our classroom (Room 108) is a comfortable space where students are free to explore their interests, challenge themselves, and reach their goals. Let's work together to make that happen!
