Miss Mrs. Catalano

  Hi, I am Paula Catalano and I will be teaching 5th Grade ELA and Social Studies.  I have been at Riverwood for 16 years.  I previously taught Second and Third Grade.  I am excited about teaching Fifth grade.  I am originally from Dunkirk, NY, which is about an hour south of Buffalo.  My family and I moved here in 2006.  My husband, Jeff, works for Toyota. Our sons are now grown and experiencing thrilling adventures. Josh is a pharmacist and lives in Alaska with his wife, Cameron, and his daughter, Paxtyn.  Zac lives in California, working for Google as a Software Engineer.  Eric is currently a junior at the University of Charlotte working towards his Mechanical Engineering degree.  I couldn't be prouder of my sons. They are truly living their dream.
