Mrs. Montante

Second Grade

Personal: I am a Niagara University alumni and started teaching in 2013. I live in Youngstown with my husband and our two boys, Cameron and Noah. Cameron is a Stella Niagara graduate and Noah also attends this beautiful school. As a family, we enjoy traveling and spending time outside.

Philosophy: In my classroom you will find a community-like environment in which we all work together to help one another grow as students and individuals. Our classroom is built off of consistent routines, filled with both whole group and individualized activities to meet the needs of all students. In addition to academics, we learn about values and build character focusing on concepts such as responsibility and honesty.
