My name is Mrs. DeFalco. I teach 4th grade here at Arlington Heights Elementary School. I began my teaching career during the 1999-2000 school year. Throughout those years, I have also taught both second and third grade. I have an Associates degree in Early Childhood, a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education, and a Master’s degree in Reading, where I also hold a reading specialist certification K-12. I live in Stroudsburg with my husband, Ryan, and our three children; Zachary, Vanessa and Isabella. Aside from teaching, my passion is Cheerleading. I have been coaching since 2001.
