Mrs. Sloat - About Me

pictureAbout Me...
Hi! My name is Mary Sloat and I am happy to again be setting up my first grade classroom at George R. Martin Elementary School.  Let me tell you a little about myself.
I graduated from The University of Rhode Island in 1988 with a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education.  I received my Master's degree in Special Education from Rhode Island College in 1996.  I started working in Seekonk in 1994 at North School where I worked as a Resource Teacher in grade 4.  In 1995, I was hired at Martin School where I taught 6th grade for 2 years.   After that, I taught a second/third grade loop classroom (the same children for 2 years) until 2008 when I began teaching first grade.
Personally, I grew up in Lincoln, Rhode Island and still currently live there.  My husband and I have one son, Nathan, who is in 10th grade in Lincoln.  We have one cat, Smokey.
