Mrs. Niranjani Prabhakar

Hi, I’m Mrs. Prabhakar,

I am very excited to be your child’s teacher this year. We are going to learn so many things together. This is my 5th year teaching at AJLA. Previously I have substitutes at CPS schools and taught middle school science and math in the suburbs of Chicago. I have also worked for a few companies as a content specialist in the assessment field, traveling to different states department of education.

I am very passionate about teaching all subjects and I love using technology as much as I can.

Reading We will start the year doing selections from the basal reader but incorporate some novel studies. We will also start Junior Great books during the year. Accelerated Reading will be 10% of their Reading grade this year. Please monitor assignment notebook each evening to assure that homework and 20 minutes of reading at home are being done.  Students will be reading 20 minutes in school so please make sure if they are absent, they must make up this work also. Reading logs are filled out only in 5th grade. 

Writing workshop will happen in class. We will be focusing on a variety of writing genres as well as grammar.  We will focus on writing in response to text (fiction and non-fiction).

I am married with two children that are twins in 8th grade. We love to travel as a family. We have traveled to many places in to many places in the United States, Europe, and Asia.

I am excited for a great year!!

Sincerely, Mrs. Prabhakar
