Mrs. Piro has been teaching middle school Language Arts and Social Studies since 2004 and has a great passion for both the age group and the subject matter.
Born and raised in Northern California, Mrs. Piro met her husband while finishing her Bachelor's degree at Pepperdine University in Malibu.  After completing her Master's Degree in Education, she was swept away to beautiful North County, San Diego where her husband grew up.  Mr. Piro is also an educator, teaching 8th grade Language Arts at San Elijo Middle School. Both Piros enjoy serving the San Marcos community where they live with their twin five-year-old daughters.
