Office Hours:
8:00am to 2:20pm
Grades Taught:


As far back as she can remember, Mrs. Dizinno always wanted to be a teacher.  After graduating from State  University College  at Oneonta,  she was lucky to get a job teaching second grade in St. Raphael, East Meadow. She found her passion!  She  stayed there, teaching Second , Kindergarten and First grade for thirteen and one half years.   While teaching, she attended Long Island University at C. W. Post and received her  Masters Degree in Elementary Education with a concentration in Educational  Psychology.
Her  husband's job took the family  to The Netherlands when her son was in First Grade.  He attended the American School of The Hague, where she worked part time teaching remedial reading and English to six to nine year old children.  What a wonderful experience that was!
When her  own two children were young, she started subbing in several Catholic schools in the area.  She soon realized that she enjoyed teaching older students, as well. She was thrilled when Mrs. Sadicario offered her the Fourth Grade position here at St. Patrick's. That was in 2001, and she has been here ever since. 
To Mrs. Dizinno,  teaching is a vocation and her classroom is a second home.  Every day is a new adventure!  She thanks  God for the opportunity to pursue this dream.
