Mrs. Paula Catalano

Welcome Back.

Hi, my name is Paula Catalano.  I have been at Riverwood since 2006 and I have loved every minute!!  I have three wonderful sons.  Joshua is a pharmacist and lives in Alaska and yes it is as beautiful as everyone says!!!  Zachary is a software engineer for Capital One in Richmond.  Eric is a freshman at UNC Charlotte working on his mechanical engineering degree.  I am so proud of all three of them. My husband, Jeff and I moved with our family 14 years ago from a small town an hour south of Buffalo, New York.  We miss our families back in New York but love North Carolina.  This year is going to be unique and the best ever.  No matter where the kids are they will be reading, writing, talking with classmates, and having a good time.  They will  grow as readers and respectful girls and boys.  I can't wait to meet everyone at Orientation.
