Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! My name is Mrs. Ianiero and I absolutely LOVE teaching first grade! This is my sixth year in State College at Spring Creek Elementary (formerly Lemont)! It was so exciting to open up our new building last year- and we look forward to another great year making memories! My name can be a little tricky to pronounce, so I will help right off the bat- it is pronounced "eye-uh-narrow" (and rhymes with "bow-n-arrow").
I taught second grade for one year, and first grade for nine years. I moved to State College from the Philadelphia area about five years ago. I love calling Happy Valley my home (I am an alum!). My husband, Joey, and I have a little girl named Madison- she is 1 1/2! She is starting to talk like crazy and loves to play outside, especially in any type of water- puddles, the pool, you name it! She went in the ocean and went on her first hike this summer- we love to hike and explore as a family! I can't wait to share lots of Maddie stories this year! :)
There are five people in my family- my Mom, Dad, and my two brothers. I am the middle child. They all live in the Philadelphia area, but love coming to visit me! We are all HUGE Penn State fans! We go nuts cheering for the Nittany Lions!
I can't wait to learn all about my first graders and your summer adventures! The more we know about each other- the more we ALL learn together! First grade will be full of reading, playing, writing, singing, and lots more! :) I can't wait to meet you- in person, or on the computer! Together we will make it a GREAT year!
Hugs, Mrs. Ianiero
