Miss Fuentes 8th Grade

  • Welcome to 8th Grade!

    My name is Miss Fuentes and it is my first year teaching at Old Turnpike School and my sixth year teaching. I have taught 4th and 6th grades and am looking forward to a great 8th grade year!


    A little about me . . . 

    I'm a huge football fan and I love the New York Giants. I try to get to as many games as I can during the season, otherwise I like to spend Sundays with family and friends watching the game in my "Fan Cave". 

    My favorite animal is the giraffe. If you visit my classroom, let me know how many little giraffes you can find! I update the collection frequently.

    My favorite colors are pink and gold. 

    I love the summer. I spend a lot of time by my pool or down the shore on our time off. 

    I read A LOT, especially during long breaks and over the summer. If you have any good book recommendations, bring them by!

    I have two dogs - Cabela and Kiyah. I can't imagine my life without them.

    I am recently engaged! It is a very exciting and special time!



    Please take a look below. You will find links to helpful resources for each class, which will be updated frequently as we move through our units of study.

    You will also find the link to my Google Classroom where both students and parents can find updated nightly homework, future due dates and important information about our 8th grade classes!
