About Me...

 Staff PhotoMrs. Fiorillo

Welcome to 5th grade at Nelson Ridge School. This is my 13th year in the district, and my third year at Nelson Ridge.

 I teach what I love- reading and language arts. I have an undergraduate degree from Illinois State University in Elementary Education and a Master's degree from Governors State University in Education Administration. These degrees, coupled with my 14 years of being a mom,  help shape my teaching style and attitude towards teaching and learning.  I am excited and motivated to give each day my best effort, and I truly love what I do.
