5-2/Ms. Andrea Turrisi

5th grade


Hello my name is Ms. Turrisi. I am the 5th and 6th Grade science teacher and the AIS teacher at Notre Dame School. Throughout my life, I've always wanted to make a difference in the lives of children, which is the reason why I chose teaching as my profession.

I graduated from Molloy College with my Bachelor's and Master's Degree. I am certified in Early Childhood/Childhood Education (Birth-6th Grade) and Childhood Special Education.

This is my fifth year teaching at Notre Dame School and I am really excited to have your child in my class! My goal is to make your child's learning experience the most successful it can be. Throughout the year, your child will use a variety of process skills, use higher order thinking, learn to work cooperatively with others, have the opportunity to experiment, and engage in hands-on projects and activities.
