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!
