    About My Classroom
    Welcome to the Butler Learning Resource Center! I am very excited to start the new school year and to get know my students and their parents. I have a strong passion for teaching and love connecting with my students. I utilize this relationship so that I can engage them in the learning process, inspiring them to address their academic struggles in order to become a more independent learner.  
    In LRC, academic support/review and basic skills instruction are provided. Specific areas such as organization, note-taking, time management, test-taking, and study skills will be addressed on a regular basis. It will be very important for my students to bring their planners to LRC on a daily basis so that I can ensure that they are organized and writing down HW's in them. I will not be posting the various HW assignments for students on this page. If students forget to write down HW in their planners, it is important for them to go check with Schoolwires, EDMODO, and or Google Classroom.
    I will be available for after school extra help on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays from 2:30 to 3:15. I encourage all of my students to utilize this time so that they can stay on top of their assignments and get additional instruction for challenging instructional topics. I can be reached at dtratt@scarsdaleschools.org. Please feel free to contact me as I value good communication with parents.
