Ms. Maria Telesca Maria
Since elementary school, I always knew that I wanted to become a teacher. The teaching profession allows me do what I love most: helping children learn new things and discover their interests and talents. I have an undergraduate degree in the humanities from Saint Mary’s College in Notre Dame, Indiana, and a graduate degree in teaching and learning from DePaul University in Chicago. Before moving back to Northern Virginia where I grew up, I taught in the Illinois area for ten years. Some of my favorite things to do other than teaching are gardening, traveling, swimming, and reading.
