Mrs. Maria

Hello everyone!

As a graduate of St. Demetrios I can honestly say teaching here has been such a fulfilling experience. It is an amazing feeling to watch your children grow in their education and to know that in some small way I was a part of their growth.  As a mother of three girls that also attend the St. Demetrios school system, it is a true pleasure to see all of the knowledge they aquire daily.

I have been teaching in Pre-School for the past five years and was previously a Pre-K Sunday School teacher.  I am so proud and thankful to be your child's first teacher.  At the beginning of the school year, they come in sad, unsure, crying, and afraid to leave their parents.  By the end of the year, they are confident, happy and smiling every day!  

This year, we will focus on learning our colors, shapes, letters and numbers in order to build a strong foundation.  Our classes are filled with structure, love and encouragement to help the children become more independent and prepared for Pre-K.  My hope is to instill each child with the proper tools to embark on a successful educational journey.
