Degrees and Certifications:
Hello friends! My name is Corrina Talamo and I am beyond excited to be joining the ELC preschool teaching team! I graduated from the University of Findlay in May of 2018. I graduated with my Bachelors of Science in Early Childhood Education. I also carry the Early Childhood Special Education Endorsement. During my time at the University of Findlay, I was a member of the Women’s Swimming and Diving team where I served as captain my senior year. While also in college, I spent time as a reading tutor for elementary school students as well as a swim lesson instructor for kiddos age’s two to five! I recently finished my first year of teaching for Newark City Schools as a Preschool Intervention Specialist. I am very excited to continue my journey as a preschool teacher within the New Albany-Plain Local School District. There is something so magical about working with preschool students! Their love for learning is so contagious! There is nothing I love more than seeing their faces light up when they are able to make real life connections to the information that we are learning in the classroom.
Outside of teaching, I love spending time with friends and family, running, swimming, and reading! I currently swim for the New Albany Masters Swim Team and I am also training for my second marathon! Over the summer I worked at my “home away from home,” the Westerville JC Pool, as one of the pool managers. I love to travel and I was very excited to be able to spend some time in New York City as well as Nashville, Tennessee this summer!
I am very excited for the new school year to start, and I cannot wait to begin my journey here in the New Albany-Plain Local School District!
