BS Interdisciplinary Studies Math 4-8 EC-6

Ms. Carissa Magliolo

Hello!  I'm so excited to be your child's teacher this year!  This is my second year at Howard Norman teaching 5th grade Math.  I love seeing children grow not only academically but socially/emotionally as well.  I love the life lessons they take away from school.  I only hope they take away as much as they can from me as I do from them.  

I graduated from Texas A&M-Corpus Christi with a BS in Interdisciplinary studies/emphasis in Math.  I did my student teaching with 7th/8th graders.  I went on to teach Pre-K for 6 years in an early childhood education school.  I fell in love with that age group!  During that time at school, I also did night school to obtain my Massage Therapy license.  I have been a licensed Massage Therapist for 9 years, and worked in a spa for 8 years.  Part of those years I left education, but always felt something was missing.  I took some courses online to obtain my Child Life certificate and volunteered at Dell Children's.  Although i loved seeing kids again, I realized that environment wasn't for me and decided to get back into the classroom.  

I was fortunate to become an aide in PFISD in the Early Childhood Special Education classroom.  I loved all of the things I learned in there, espcially the different ways to communicate with children who have a wide variety of needs.  Having this experience, I decided to get my EC-6 certication.  I was again fortunate to land my position at Howard Norman and become part of a GREAT 5th grade team.  I'm excited for this year to meet my new students, work with parents, and become a great school family!  If there is anything you ever need from me, please don't hesitate to reach out.  Here's to another FANTASTIC year!
