A Little About Mrs. Rizza

1. It is my fourth year teaching at DuJardin. I taught fifth grade my first year and third grade my second and third year.

3. I have a very cute puppy named Kona. She is a husky mix, and you will hear many stories about her this year!

4. I am a student too! I am currently working on my masters degree from Western Illinois University.

5. Along with my elementary teaching degree, I have an endorsement in English as a second language and a minor in art.

6. When I am not teaching, I am: running, walking with Kona, or crafting with my Cricut
