"The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires." William Arthur Ward.I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Christa Mauro and I am a kindergarten teacher in the Green Wing. You might ask yourself why did she start off with a quote. I enjoy quotes and this one happens to be one of my favorite quotes because it reminds me of what I hope to accomplish as a teacher.
I have earned two Master's Degrees. My first is in Communications from SUNY
at Buffalo. My most recent degree is from Niagara University in Elementary Education. I am soon going to begin the process for National Board Certification. In 2011, I was presented an award from the Board of Education for creating a "Chain Reaction of Kindness" throughout the district. This project was based on Rachel's Challenge. On opening day for the 2012-13 school year I earned an award for Meritorious Service to Lewiston-Porter for the 2011-2012 school year. I was honored for "always putting children first and doing what is best for children," my community involvement, and for my committment to Lewiston-Porter.
I have taught on a collegiate level and was an administrator at Niagara Catholic Junior/Senior High School for six years. I started teaching in 2003 at Lewiston - Porter. I am an active teacher serving as the teacher representative of the Primary Education Center for the PTA.
My two greatest gifts are my children, Brent and Kerianne Atkinson, who are graduates of Lewiston-Porter. Brent is employed as a mammal keeper for the Bronx Zoo and Kerianne is a recent graduate of Buffalo State College and is working in fashion and public relations. She is also pursuing a cosmetology license.
