Meet Mrs. DeAnglis
I have had the privilege of teaching at Francis A. Desmares School for the last twelve years. My first three years were spent in first grade, followed by the last nine years in Kindergarten.
I began my teaching career in Mason, Ohio, a northern suburb of Cincinnati, in 1994 where I taught Kindergarten for four years. At that time, Mason City Schools served as a model for inclusion for the state. Through collaboration with a team of special educators and various therapists (speech, OT, PT, psychologist), we were able to support the learning needs of all of our students in the general education classroom. This was an invaluable beginning to my teaching career and laid the foundation of my fundamental belief that all children can benefit from learning with a diverse community of learners.
I completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Cincinnati, where I received a B.A. in Spanish Studies. My interest in Spanish began when I studied and lived in Chile as a teenager, and later I was fortunate to live in Guatemala and Peru. Following my B.A, I began a 3-year post-baccalaureate program, also at U.C., in Elementary Education and Kindergarten. In 2015, I received a master’s degree in early childhood education at The College of New Jersey.
My family and I moved to Montgomery Township, New Jersey, 15 years ago. Some of my interests include taking care of our many pets (two cats and a guinea pig), exploring nature, traveling, cooking, reading, gardening, and being with my family!
