Welcome to my class site. This year I will be teaching Second Grade!!

About Me

My name is Carrie Garlesky. In 2010, I graduated from the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown with a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education. I have dual certifications in both Elementary Education and as a Reading Specialist PK-12. I have been a substitute teacher, AmeriCorps member, Title I Aide and Special Education Aid, and have had the opportunity to assume all elementary teaching responsibilities. My experiences have exposed me to grade levels K4- 6th, a variety of student abilities, and diverse classrooms. I also have experience teaching at both parochial and public schools. This has given me a chance to work with both small and large classrooms, and different instructional models and curricula. I also have two beautiful girls!

I was hired at Divine Mercy Catholic Academy in October of 2016. I have taught 4th, 5th and 6th grade Math. I have also taught 5th and 6th grade Social Studies and 3rd grade All subjects. I worked as an ACE teacher for a school year too. I am currently teaching 2nd Grade at the East Campus.
