Mrs. Andrea Lopes

Dear Families,

Hello and welcome to Carteret  Middle School Think Tank! My name is Mrs. Lopes, and I am extremely excited to be your child’s Think Tank  teacher! A little bit about me:  I am a proud first generation American citizen, with parents who originated from Portugal. Portugal is my second home, and I love spending summers there!  I have a two year old daughter that keeps me up on my toes when I am not working! This is my fourteenth year teaching in Carteret Public school, and my first year teaching Think Tank and Spark, AND my first year at the Middle School! I am very excited for this new adventure!  Carteret  has had my heart, from the amazing faculty and staff, to every unique student I have had the pleasure of being around. There is nothing I would rather do, and I can't wait to get started! 

This year, your child will  learn many 21st century skills with me, as well as learning to work collaboratively with several hands on STEM (science tech engineering math)  projects, and Project-based learning that will help enforce their math, science, technological, and social skills, while problem solving real-life problems and discussing real social issues! As always, the start of a new year brings promise and growth for everyone in all areas. This growth can be obtained to its fullest potential as long as we all work together. If I can assist you in any way to make this the best year for your child, please feel free to contact me, at alopes@carteretschools.org. I will be sure to reply back at my earliest convenience.

Here's to a great school year!

Mrs. Lopes
