    Language Arts and Social Studies
    I teach sixth grade English Language Arts and Social Studies.  Ancient civilizations first sparked my interest when I was in sixth grade, and I first became intrigued with English Language Arts when I wrote for the fourth grade newspaper. I live in Redwood City with my husband, and daughter, and I have taught at North Star Academy since the fall of 2001. I appreciate the opportunity to work with such a dedicated staff, supportive parents and talented, hard working students.
    Homework, classwork, projects, test dates and special events are listed on Google Classroom. 
    Parents are encouraged to check their student's grades on the Parent Portal link on the North Star website.
    The best way to reach me is by my email bpinto@rcsdk8.net and I am often available to meet in person directly after school.  
    For enrichment I teach Yearbook.  For further information on ordering yearbooks, please refer to the link below.
