• Hello! My name is Catherine Alongi and I am looking forward to my second year at Frederick Douglass! This will be my 6th year of teaching. I previously worked at Sterling Elementary School as a Special Education Teacher. Prior to moving to Virginia, I worked in NY, also as a Special Education Teacher. I am very excited to kickoff another great school year! I have many new and exciting ideas for the 2018-2019 school year! I know this will be a great year filled with growing, learning, and fun!
    I grew up in Rochester, New York. I attended Nazareth College of Rochester and received a Bachelor of Art degree in psychology and inclusive education. I then completed my Master of Science degree, from the University of Rochester, in Human Development with a concentration in Developmental Differences. I love all types of sports (Let's Go Buffalo Bills). I enjoy spending time with my friends, reading, and visiting new places in the area. I travel to Rochester often and enjoy spending time with my family when I am home visiting.
    Families, the bridge between school and home is so important! Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns: Ms. Alongi
