Leo A. Rizzuto Elementary

Hi, I'm Natalie Gilmore. This is my first year to teach full-time at Rizzuto, but it is not my first year to teach. I have previously taught middle school English and elementary Music. I have also substituted for practically every subject and every grade in several different school districts.

I am so excited to have my own classroom again and to be teaching second grade dual language at Rizzuto. I have already been very active in the school over the last year, with two children enrolled here and through substituting and volunteering.

My classroom theme this year is "Monsters that work hard can go anywhere!" I hope that my students will learn that all knowledge we pick up through Reading, Science, and Math can take us to new and fun places in life. The monster pictures all over my room will serve as reminders of that.

I look forward to getting to know my students and to teaching and learning from them!
