Mrs. Maria Buonarati

     Welcome to the 2019 -2020 school year.  This is my fifth year at Lewis and Clark Middle School teaching the Positive Behavior Intervention program. I teach Social Skills and Study Skills.  I am here to assist students in learning to manage emotional and social goals that seem overwhelming in a traditional school setting. 

    We believe that each student is amazing just the way they are and we work to instill that value in each student.  We provide additional help, as needed, to ensure a safe learning environment for the students, as well.

     I previously worked at Lake Hazel Middle School in the ERR program as a Paraprofessional.  I was there for three years before moving to Lewis and Clark. 

     I have three children, two cats, and a wonderful husband.  We love to travel and thanks to supportive grandparents, we are privileged enough to do so throughout the summer. We have been to Mount Rushmore, Yellowstone National Park, Wallowa Lake, and Disneyland! In addition, we love to camp. We have been able to camp at both Oregon and Washington coasts, along with many places here in Idaho.  Any place that includes family and friends is our favorite.

Your students are amazing!  If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.
