Welcome to Mrs. Rokas' classroom website! I am a second grade teacher at Menlo Park Academy, a school for the gifted and talented located in Cleveland, Ohio. I have taught in many different roles over the years. I have been a reading/literacy specialist. I have worked as an intervention specialist. While these jobs have given my great insight and experience, my passion has always been working as an elementary classroom teacher. In this role, I have the honor of caring for, teaching, mo tivating, and inspiring your children to become the best version of themselves that they can be. I work hard to make sure that every student feels loved and respected in my classroom. Being a teacher of the gifted means that I get to really challenge my students. This website is a source of communication for students and parents to use throughout the school year. Please take a look around.
