• Meet Mrs. DiMaio


    San Francisco

    My name is Cherise DiMaio.  This will be my thirteenth year teaching at Signal Hill.  I graduated from Loyola University in Maryland with a Bachelor's of Education.  After working for a few years, I decided to pursue my Master's degree at TCNJ, and I am dually certified in Elementary Education and Special Education.  I have taught grades Pre-K to 5 at Signal Hill.  This will be my seventh year teaching third grade, and I absolutely love it!   In addition to teaching, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, being outdoors, reading, and traveling to new places.   I am excited for a fun year with you and your child in third grade! 
    My future students:  
    I hope you took some time this summer to relax and have some fun with your family and friends!  I made many fun memories with Mr. DiMaio and our daughter, Allie.  We went on lots of hikes, spent time on the beach, swam at the pool, and enjoyed a family vacation in Maine.   I'm looking forward to learning more about you and hearing about your summer.  You are going to learn and grow so much this year!
