2nd: Cathy Stellino

Cathy Stellino has 7 years experience in the field of education. She worked in the East Meadow School District and her most recent placement was in the Patchogue-Medford School District as a permanent substitute teacher. Cathy attended Hofstra University where she received her Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education. She also holds New York State Certification in Students with Disabilities and Early Childhood Education.

Cathy says, “I believe that every student is different and has their own individual way of learning as well as their own set of needs and gifts that are brought to the classroom. As a teacher, it is my responsibility to provide an environment that will foster maximum learning and meet each child’s individual needs.”

When Cathy is not teaching, she is spending time with her 4 1/2 year old twin daughters and husband. In her free time, she also enjoys reading, swimming, cooking and going for walks. Cathy is very excited to start her second year at Progressive!
