Hazleton Elementary/Middle School


    Dear Parents/Guardians,

                I am delighted to welcome your child to 4th grade! I would like to start off by introducing myself. My name is Mrs.Rasinger (previously known as Miss Pliska) and I teach math and science. I graduated from Bloomsburg University in December 2016 with a degree in Middle Level Mathematics Education (Grades 4-8), a minor in Educational Technology, and I am also certified to teach K-12 online courses. I am ecstatic to be teaching at Hazleton Elementary/Middle School since it was the elementary school I attended growing up! In my free time I love to play tennis, walk my dog Xyla May, enjoying nature, and traveling with my husband.

                It is my goal that your child’s 4th grade experience will be filled with personal growth and to encourage each of my students to become life-long learners. I am looking forward to starting this new school year with you and your child. As an educator, I believe that a good parent-teacher relationship is key for your child to reach maximum school success. Throughout the school year I will communicate with you via notes, telephone calls, progress reports, report cards, and parent-teacher conferences. I encourage you to contact me if you have any questions or concerns at any time.

                I am looking forward to beginning the year with your child. I also look forward to working with you to support and enhance your child’s academic growth. I want my students to leave my classroom being successful, responsible citizens of society. I expect my students to come to class each day prepared and with a positive attitude. Through student, parent, and teacher involvement I believe all students can succeed.
