Mrs. Elizabeth Socci
I am a certified Business and Marketing teacher, as well as a Coordinator of Work- Based Learning for Career Development. I graduated from Marist College with a degree in Business/Finance and minored in Accounting. I am currently working towards a Master of Business Administration. I have previous work experience in customer and financial services, inventory control, business ownership and management, sales, real estate. This is my second year at LaGrange Middle School and I am very excited. Prior to joining the Arlington Central School District, I was a high school business teacher in a neighboring district. I am the mother of two wonderful daughters, ages fourteen and ten.
As a teacher, I am passionate about creating a climate and culture in my classroom which allows each and every student to feel safe, supported, and valued. My students' social and emotional well-being is at the forefront of my priorities, which is why I infuse character development and soft skills into each lesson. I encourage citizenship in our community, school building, classroom and online. My goal as an educator is to guide students to have confidence in their own unique selves, reach their fullest potential and always DREAM BIG!
