It is with great enthusiasm that I introduce myself as the fifth grade teacher. My name is Angela Longarini and this will be my fourth year at Our Lady of Guadalupe. It has been an aspiration of mine to become an educator of young children. Receiving my Bachelors of Arts in Childhood and Adolescent Studies has brought me one step closer to attaining my credential. I fervently believe raising student’s academic, social, and spiritual standards during the early years prepares them to be successful 21st century learners. This allows each child to reach his or her fullest learning potential.
