Ms. Dente has been working at St. Mary School since 2011. Her role has been as a teacher assistant working in the preschool and first grade classes. In 2013, she completed and passed the ParaPro Assessment for paraprofessionals. She is excited to be working now as a lead teacher under the direction of Mrs. Calendrillo in the part time 4-year-old class.
In a volunteer capacity, Ms. Dente has been the SMS Library co-chair since 2007 and the SMS Book Fair co-chair since 2008. She has also been a Girl Scout troop leader since 2006, leading her daughter and her friends from Daisies to Cadets.
“I have been so fortunate to experience St. Mary School as both a parent and an employee. The best part about working at the school for me is the staff. The teachers and staff are like family. They are always there for me, willing to help in a moment’s notice. The same caring and nurturing environment that they provide for the children is extended back to the staff.”
