Hi there! My name is Adrianne Giammatteo and this is my fourteenth year of teaching! I started my teaching career within the New Britain Public School system for four years before coming to the West Hartford school district 10 years ago. I have taught fifth and third grades, and served as the IB Coordinator. I received my Bachelors of Arts in Feminist and Gender Studies from Bryn Mawr College, my Masters of Science in Elementary Education from the University of New Haven, and my Sixth Year in Educational Leadership and Administration and 092 certification from UCONN. I have lived in Philadelphia, New York City, Italy, and even Cairo, Egypt! My goal is to make every child love school by making it the most exciting and happy place in the world! How do I spend my time when I’m not at school? I enjoy every moment with my two daughters, my family, my friends, and my dog Buster!
