Hi!! My name is Mary Ellen Schiavone. I am the Reading Specialist here at St. John Fisher. I taught third grade for 8 years and although I am going to miss it, I am very excited to be working in our new Reading Intervention Program (RIP)! I was raised on the Southside-- I went to St. Bede the Venerable, Mother McAuley, and St. Xavier University. I recently received my masters in Literacy Curriculum and I can honestly say I love all things Reading! I am so lucky to work with such amazing students, faculty, and families here at SJF and love the sense community this school offers! So much so, that I have my own little Falcon here in our preschool program!
A few fun facts... I enjoy traveling, music, all things about Chicago, the Cubs, learning new things and of course reading. I can't wait to meet all of you and start the school year!!
