All About Me


                      Hi! My name is Serena Spata (a.k.a. Ms. Serena Coco).                   

This will be my 16th year teaching in Smithtown.

I am really looking forward to another wonderful and exciting year here at Tackan!

You will watch as your child develops over the next year! The transformation from unsure 4th grader to confident 5th grader, ready to take on anything… is an amazing and awesome thing to see! It is one of the major reasons that I love teaching.

I look forward to establishing and keeping open lines of communication between home and school. It is so important that you and I keep in touch often. Without this connection, your child will not reach their full potential.

Please do not ever hesitate to contact me with any questions, comments, or concerns that you may have.

I can be easily reached through my school email which I check often throughout the school day ( You can also post a comment on this blog. Or of course… you can write me a note too.  🙂

I look forward to a wonderful year together! :o)


Here are some pictures of my family!!

    Mrs Spata you are very nice teacher and I am positive this will be a great year because my sister Sarina told me all about you and the fun things you do.

  5. sspata says:

    Hi Arron! It is lucky that you have a sister who can give you a bunch of information about what to expect in my class! I will try to still surprize you with some things that even she doesn’t know about! 🙂

    Mrs. Spata, I will not be here on 11/14/12(Thursday) because I have a religious thing to do. Also, for the math homework on 11/13/13(Wednesday), u did not tell us the question for it, so is it okay I did the whole lesson? Let me know. See ya on Friday 😀

  8. sspata says:

    Hi Saher! The whole lesson is great if you understand it. Otherwise just do the first few. If you have the time, look at todays class notes (lesson 8). I will show it to you tomorrow, but it will be good to look at it ahead of time. 🙂

    hi Mrs. Spata! I was looking online for typing games and I couldn’t find the right one. can you please try to send me the name of the website that we were on at the computer lab? thank you! I hope you have a wonderful winter break!

  19. sspata says:

    Hi Natalie!! I am not sure that you can access it from home. It is new this year and I unfortunately don’t have the information that you need. I do have a few fun games on the right side of my blog in the “just for fun” section that will help you type more accurately.
