I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself to my Second grade class and their families.  I know my last name can be hard to pronounce, so I always tell my students to think of a canoe and then add cciari (the sound cc in Italian is pronounced ch as in chocolate).  I can’t wait to meet all my second graders in September.  A little bit about myself, I am a mother of four wonderful children.  They all attended St. Joseph school and received a stellar academic and spiritual foundation for life.  I come to St. Joseph with years of teaching experience in both elementary and special education.

I believe that all children should have the opportunity to attain a solid educational foundation, in an environment which aids each student to learn and achieve to his or her highest potential.  At St. Joseph school, you experience the love of God throughout your school day.  As I shared with Mrs. Nedza, “I recently saw a television ad for promoting Catholic school education”that stated,”Catholic schools are the best kept secret.”  May we all share this secret with everyone we meet in our community.

I wish you all the best that this season has to offer and I’ll meet you in September full of energy and anticipation to start a fantastic school year.
