“It is a beautiful thing when a career and a passion come together.” Unknown
Hello, my name is Lyanne Novales. I’m the Third Grade Teacher here at Mary Immaculate School. I have attended Catholic schools my whole life. I was enrolled in Kindergarten through Eighth Grade at St. Genevieve Elementary School. I went on to graduate from St. Genevieve High School. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Liberal Studies with an emphasis in English. While at Mount Saint Mary’s University, I was able to work closely with students from First Grade and Fifth Grade. After a few years of teaching at Mary Immaculate School, I knew that I wanted to further my education and become a better teacher for my students. I received my Masters Degree and Credential in Education from Mount Saint Mary’s University.
This will be my tenth year working here at Mary Immaculate School. I am currently the yearbook moderator, STAR test coordinator and teacher-mentor. My passion has always been directed toward finding new strategies to enhance my class curriculum and help my students succeed. I’m excited to take on this new adventure as our school’s Director of Education and Curriculum. With this role, I will have the opportunity to work with my Principal, and fellow teachers, to help them, learn from them and our students as well.
