As we prepare for the upcoming school year, we excited to share the following staff updates:
Please join us in welcoming Mrs. DiFilippo as our new 1st grade teacher! Mrs. DiFilippo comes to us with previous experience at St. Christopher school in East Hartford where she taught Kindergarten and Pre-K. A product of Catholic education herself, having attended Holy Trinity Elementary/Middle School and Mercy High School, Mrs. DiFilippo holds degrees in Early Childhood Elementary Education and Psychology from Keene State College in New Hampshire. Mrs. DiFilippo is excited to join our school community, working alongside Mrs. Alexander in 1st grade (and also Mrs. Paradis whom she worked with at St. Chris).
As previously announced, Mrs. Fitzgerald (former SJS 1st grade teacher) has taken on the role of Pre-Kindergarten Program Director/Pre-K4 Teacher this year. We are excited to announce that Mrs. Carpenter (our former SJS Librarian) will be joining Mrs. Fitzgerald as a Pre-Kindergarten Aide; Mrs. Tierney (who was our Librarian last year) has accepted the Saint James School Librarian role on a permanent basis.
Also in Pre-Kindergarten news, we are sad to report that Pre-K Aide Mrs. LaChance will not be returning this year. And, Mrs. Mauldin will be moving over to the big school to work as a Kindergarten Aide in Mrs. Vassallo’s classroom.
Lastly, we are pleased to report that Mr. Lucey will be returning to us as our General Music Teacher.
We will be updating the staff directory on the App and our school website shortly.
