Teachers Bio

Nancy White teaches third grade and third grade religion. She has 45 years of experience teaching at St. Francis de Sales, which includes teaching kindergarten, first grade, second grade, fifth thru eighth grades, English, reading, and math, and presently third grade. She attended Baltimore Community College and continued Early Childhood Education at Salisbury State College. She also is a certified Orton-Gillingham Reading Specialist, Gesell Developmental Examiner and Assessor in Early Childhood, holds a Religion Teaching Certificate, and approved by the Diocese of Wilmington. She is the recipient of The Benemerenti Medal for long-tenured commitment and service to Catholic education.

She believes in sharing her faith and praying with her students throughout the day as a reminder, “They are always in the Holy Presence of God.” Her classroom theme is ‘Moral Courage’ as a reminder to make good choices and nurture their three R’s, Religion, Respect, and Responsibility. She sees her role as a coach and facilitator in the classroom. To personalize learning, she encourages students to generate questions for each other, while also facilitating classroom discussions to promote student learning.

Each student is assessed daily on their understanding and application of the skills being taught. She also uses oral and individual evaluations, middle and end of chapter assessments, theme, and concept tests to assess her students’ knowledge. Students’ progress and proficiency are communicated to students and parents with comments and grades. She believes self-confidence empowers students to be the best they can be, to express themselves, and to better understand the ever-changing world around them.
