Hello and welcome to second grade! I am Mrs. Catalani and I will be your teacher for the 2023-2024 school year. I have experience in 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade classrooms. This year will be full of learning, fun, new experiences and adventures. I am so excited to see everyone’s creative work and the uniqueness they bring to our classroom.
I moved here from Las Vegas, NV in 2017 so this will be my seventh year teaching 2nd grade at HTA. I am originally from Chicago, IL where I attended public schools my whole life. I also met my wonderful husband in Chicago. We have been married for 11 years and have a beagle named Lolo. Beagles are our favorite breed of dogs to rescue and they have even inspired the classroom.
We have a Peanuts themed classroom with tons of Snoopy accents. My favorite color is pink although I also like the colors of our classroom (black and red). I love to read and try new restaurants while exploring Arizona. I also love to watch sports and even travel to support my Chicago teams in various cities.
