Welcome to Mrs. Santoro's First Grade Class - Room 215

Dear Parents,
I couldn’t be happier to join the fabulous Saint Paul of the Cross staff. My husband and our 3 children: Nicky (4), Angie (2) and George (1), have been a part of the Saint Paul family for years. Previously, I worked for Cicero Public School District, first as a 3rd grade teacher and then as a Mathematics Instructional Coach. I hold a Master of Elementary Education and endorsements in both mathematics and language arts. For the past six years I worked closely with UIC mathematics coaches to learn about the developmental process behind student understanding and conceptualization.
I believe learning is a unique experience for each individual. I plan to set specific learning goals with each student and hope to work with both you and your child to achieve these goals. Glory to God for this amazing opportunity. I’m excited for the plan He has for this school year.
Please say hello when you see me around school, church or town.
