My name Is Robin Clinton. I have been a teacher since 1982. I have been teaching full time at Marieville School since 1986. I have been married for 25 years. We have two boys. Our oldest son is 23 and a recent graduate from URI in Computer Science/Cyber security. Our youngest son is 20 and a Junior at URI. He is also studying Computer Science.
In our home we also have two cats (Shadow and Smokey) and a dog named Bella. Throughout the year I usually will referr to them for they are a big part of our world.
My goal for students has always been to help them to be the best that they can be. I believe that Reading is the fundamental part of learning. The more a child reads the better they will achieve in their other academic subjects. I always made sure this was instilled, as well, in my 2 sons. Parents are a huge part of a child's success in school. When a parent consistently reads with their child at home every night, checks their homework, helps to get them ready for the next day, their child's academics always improve.
Learning happens through listening, watching and practicing.
