Hello!  My name is Angelo Annoreno.   2017-2018 will begin my 16th year of teaching and learning from children. Along my journey, I have enjoyed 12 years of teaching third grade, one year teaching eighth grade, and these last two years I taught Physical Education and Technology to Pre-K to eighth graders, as well as Logic to seventh and eighth grade.

I have a Master of Arts in Teaching, as well as I am endorsed in English as a Second Language, Physical Education, Social Studies and Language Arts.  My decade-plus experience with School District 100 in Berwyn, Il., an Apple Distinguished District, provided me with the experience, knowledge and importance of integrating technology into the curriculum.  Since 2015, Common Sense Education has recognized me as a Certified Educator of Digital Citizenship.  I recently completed the Beck Blending Learning Initiative through Dominican University.  Using technology in the classroom boosts engagement and stimulates the multi-intelligences and senses.

On the personal side, I have been married for 22 years,  and have two beautiful children,  Esther 18, and Bella 11.  Soccer and musicals are the driving force in the Annoreno household.   My whole family loves the Chicago Fire Soccer Club.

For all who travel through my classroom; students, parents, visitors, or teachers, I hope you find it to be a place of research based learning,  respect touched by love, to create a rich learning environment in which everyone is acknowledged for the gifts they bring into this world.
