Degrees and Certifications:
Miss Gabriella DiNardo
This is my fifth year as an English Learner (EL) teacher at Trailside Middle School. In May of 2014, I graduated from The Pennsylvania State University (WE ARE!), and earned both my Bachelor of Science in Applied Spanish and my Bachelor of Science in World Language Education, with certifications in Spanish and English As a Second Language. I also received a minor in Special Education during my time at Penn State. During my time at Penn State, I spent three semesters completing practicum experiences in both Spanish and English as a Second Language. I also studied abroad in Alicante, Spain, from January 2013 to May 2013. It was an amazing and beautiful experience. Additionally, in August of 2018, I graduated from George Mason University with a Master's Degree in Educational Leadership.
I grew up in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania so I am an avid Pittsburgh and Penn State sports fan! In my spare time, I enjoy being active, traveling, and spending time with my family and friends. I have an open door policy, so feel free to contact me at any time concerning your child. Your child's success is my motivation, and I am always here to support them in pursuit of their goals and dreams. You are an integral part of this success!
