Mrs. Nina

Welcome to First Grade! I am so excited to be your child’s teacher. I have been teaching First grade at St. Demetrios Elementary for 5 years. Before making St. Demetrios my home I worked in the public school system for 6 years where I taught Pre-K through 12thgrade. Prior to teaching I worked with children as a child protective specialist for the city of NY and social worker for a family service agency.  I was born and raised in Astoria and still call Astoria my home. I am a mother to two wonderful children Matthias and Markella. When I’m not teaching I enjoy traveling, reading, and cooking.
