Mrs. Marie Mantucca
Hi! My name is Mrs. Mantucca and I am thrilled to be a 5th grade teacher. It’s going to be a fun filled year with lots of learning and adventures and I can’t wait to see what our year has in store for us.
I was born and raised in Glendale Heights, Illinois. I am the youngest of three. I have two older brothers, Eric and Joey. After high school I attended College of DuPage for three years, I then went to Elmhurst College to complete my degree in Elementary Education. After that, I completed a Master’s Degree in Reading from Benedictine University. I ALWAYS knew I wanted to be a teacher.
I have been teaching at Jonas Salk Elementary school as a fifth grade teacher for 12 years. Time really flies when you’re having fun.
I am married to an amazing man named Rick; we have been married for 10 years. We have the most wonderful boys named Mario and Dominic. They are the loves of my life and make my life complete. Mario just turned five in May and Dominic turned three in June.
I look forward to getting to know you and your family. This year will be filled with new opportunities for learning. We will be working as a team to achieve our goals. Can’t wait to meet you!
