Grade: 4th Grade Room: 19 Teacher Assistant: Mrs. Psimaras
Sydney McNally started at PCCS in the fall of 2017 as an instructional assistant and began as a fourth grade teacher in the fall of 2018. Sydney is enthralled by the uniqueness of PCCS and all that it stands for from both an environmental and educational standpoint. She graduated from Bradley University with a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education with a concentration in fine arts. This brought her the ability to weave in aspects of the arts into her instruction, which she has found very successful. Sydney had the pleasure of student teaching at Norwood Primary School in a third grade classroom. She has always loved the outdoors and is very passionate about nature, health, and the environment. She is thrilled to be part of a school that has such an emphasis on being environmentally conscious. Sydney has followed a plant based vegan diet for about three years and therefore admires how the values of PCCS align to support this health conscious part of her life. If she could have dinner with anyone from history, it would be Alexander Hamilton because she would want to know what he thinks about the musical. Sydney’s favorite book is “The Giving Tree” by Shel Silverstein.
