An interview with Mrs. Farrar!How long have you been teaching?This is my 26th year of teaching! I taught for 3 years in Cleveland (many, many years ago!) before moving to Buffalo. I taught 3rd and 4th grade at Hillview Elementary from 1994-2002. I transferred to William Street in 2002 to teach 5th grade here. I decided to move again to the AIS Department in 2006 and have been here ever since! I also teach Graduate Reading courses at Canisius College.Do you have any children?Yes - I have a son who is 14 and is in 9th grade at Lancaster High School and a daughter who is 16 and is a junior at Lancaster High School. My husband also teaches at William Street! He is a fourth grade teacher and his mom teaches at Court Street!Do you like teaching Reading?YES! I LOVE IT! I really like working with small groups of students and focusing on the skills and strategies of reading. When I work with small groups, we get to spend a lot of time digging deeper into the strategies and learn about all that goes into making a life-long reader!What are your favorite books to read?I like all kinds of books. But I think I like mysteries the best. I love when I can't figure out what's going to happen next and when I am surprised at the end! I still like to read "picture books" too! I love to look at the beautiful, and sometimes funny, illustrations!
