3rd Grade


Ms. Stradiotto is a native Southern Californian who attended California State University, Northridge and earned a degree in Child Development. Inspired by her own education in a private school, her faith, love of learning and continuing efforts to be an advocate for children, she became a teacher. Teaching is her passion and it is her desire to cultivate in children a love of learning and a knowledge of Christ and the scripture that will last a lifetime.
