My College & Career Story

Mrs. Pizzuto, LMC Director, Technology Coach

Why did I choose to be a teacher?

I have been a teacher at Bolingbrook High School for fifteen years. Before I was in the library, I taught English and reading. I have always known that I wanted to be a teacher, for as long as I can remember. Because of my love of reading and writing, I decided that I wanted to teach English & Language Arts. My twin sister is also a teacher, but she taught Spanish until she became a stay at home mom. I chose high school because I felt like that would be where I could have the most impact. Believe it or not, I didn't like high school. I wanted to make the high school I taught at a place where EVERYONE felt like they belonged.

What's Next?

I would love to take more classes and possibly earn an advanced certificate of study in Online Learning. I have been exploring different programs, and still have yet to find an affordable program that seems to be keeping up with our ever-changing technology. In addition to that, I would like to become a Google-certified educator to advance my knowledge in Google Apps for Education.
