My name is Michele Amato, and I am ecstatic to be teaching 8th grade Language Arts and Religion for my third year here at St. Giles! I attended Illinois State University where I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in English Education. I spent three years as an instructional assistant supporting students with Special Needs and I have a year of experience teaching English to 9th and 10th graders. In addition to teaching, I am proud to be taking on the role as the St. Giles Cross Country Coach. I am so excited for the opportunity to be a part of such an amazing community and I cannot wait to see what this year brings!
