Ms. Norma Tedera

Hello West Smithfield parents,

I am the second grade teacher. This year is going to be an exciting and challenging one especially that we are virtually delivering our instruction online. I have taught for more than 20 years.This is my second year teaching at West Sithfield Elementary School

I graduated my Master of Arts in Education, Bachelor of Arts in English from Notre Dame of Marbel University and bachelor of Secondary Education in History from Holy Cross of Davao University in the Philippines.

I love to read books. My love for reading began in my preschool age. I was attracted to print and pictures. When I started schooling, I was in awe at the collection of so many reading materials in our school library. It opened a whole new world of learning, experiencing the delight in immersing myself in books, novels. This is why I collect books and reading materials.

I love to travel:

Travel means adventure. Ziplining over the jungle canopy in Lake Sebu, Philippines, night safari in Singapore , riding a shinkansen (bullet train) in Japan, cruising in Bahamas, savoring exotic food in Hong Kong and China, cruising the Blue Danube river in Budapest, traversing Halstatt Village, A UNESCO World Heritage site in Austria, watching the "saints" marching out of the Astronomical Clock in Prague, soaking into the warm waters of the Blue Lagoon, the best known spa in Iceland, enjoying a Mozart dinner concert in Prague, navigating cautiously the Belfast Giants Causeway, viewing the Games of Thrones locations in Northern Ireland and walking tour of picturesque Dublin. 

Travel teaches learning domains in an intense hands-on way. I love to share my travel experiences with my students, friends and family.





  • Fun in The Sun

    Have a safe and wonderful summer!!! ENJOY!
