Thomas DiTusa

My name is Thomas DiTusa, and I am happy to say that I will be your child's English teacher for the 2014-2015 school year.  While I am originally from Long Island, New York, I have been living here in California since 1997, and I consider it my home.  Before relocating to the west coast, I graduated from LIU, earning a B.A. in elementary education and an M.A. in English.  Since then I have spent sixteen years in the classroom, instructing fourth-, fifth-, sixth-, and eighth-grade.  I currently reside in West Sacramento with my wife of thirteen years and my two young daughters, Kayla and Makenzie, who both attend elementary school.  In my spare time I enjoy, among other things, reading and writing, martial arts, weight training, playing guitar, hiking, and mountain biking. 

As an educator and parent myself, I want to partner with you to ensure that your child reaches his or her highest potential.  I believe that to be truly successful as a student, your child will have to put forth his or her best effort.  I furthermore believe that organization and engagement are critical.  To ensure that your child is always improving as a reader, I ask that he or she spend at least thirty minutes reading a day.  Students may check out books from the school library or from the public library, the latter of which is conveniently located less than ten minutes from our campus.

I am happy to talk to parents about their concerns or to answer any questions they might have regarding me, the progress of their child, or English 8 in general.  Please feel free to call me here at school or email me at tditusa@wusd.k12.ca.us.  That being said, let's have a great school year!
