I’m Edi Aquino – a wife, mother of 3, grandmother of 2- and a TEACHER of many. This is my 31st year of teaching at Thorp. I started in 1986 as a 5th grade teacher. In 1987-2015, I was assigned as a third-grade teacher. Thereafter, I’m doing MTSS (6-8) Math. My own love of children and learning make me passionate to teach. I believe teachers can make a difference by providing social guidance and help students make right decisions even when they are not in the classroom. “Traveling is learning.” I believe in learning first hand that is why I invest in traveling. Books make me see the world but for learning to last, I should be in it. I spend my free time going to movies, concerts, and above all babysitting whenever needed.
