Cortney D'Ercole

Hi everyone! My name is Cortney D'Ercole. I'm 33 years old, engaged, and have a beautiful daughter named Kennabelle and an adorable baby boy named Corson! I graduated from Wesley College in Dover, Delaware with a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and a concentration in Math. Prior to teaching at Riverwood, I was a Pre-Kindergarten teacher for two years and a paraprofessional at a school for children with special needs. I have always wanted to be an Elementary teacher and my dream has finally come true! My goal as a teacher is to provide my students with a fun, positive, and inspiring learning environment that will encourage them to develop a true love for learning! Having this job really is a dream come true and I am so lucky to be working at such an awesome school!
