Welcome to my Watertown City School District website. My name is Ms. Derrigo. I am a reading teacher/consultant for the disrrict. My goal is to guide your child to be a successful reader. We will read books together, study new words, and learn how authors write their stories. My philosophy in education is that all children are capable of being successful, given the right instruction. My work with children over the years has been a joy to see smiles on their faces when they solve a new word or answer a question correctly, or love a book they are reading. Reading is a fundamental skill in life and I feel grateful to be able to teach children strategies to achieve learning goals.
