Leo A. Rizzuto Elementary

Hi, I'm Natalie Gilmore. This is my first year in fourth grade, but it is my third year to teach full-time at Rizzuto. I have previously taught middle school English and elementary Music, as well. I have also substituted for practically every subject and every grade in several different school districts.

I am so excited to have such a great group of students in fourth grade dual language. Most of them I am teaching for the second time, since I previously taught second grade dual language.  I have been very active in this school over the last four years, with two children who were enrolled here, previously.

My classroom theme this year is "Superheroes come in all shapes and sizes!" 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 and can turn us into superheroes. The superhero pictures all over my room will serve as reminders of that.

I look forward to getting to know my students (even better) and to teaching them and learning from them!
