I would like to introduce myself and my background. My name is Dionne Carpenter and I have a bachelors of science from Syracuse University/Utica College. My Masters is in literacy from SUNY Cortland. For the past five years I previously taught preschool through Mohawk Valley Community Action, Head Start Program. Before that I worked as a sub and completed long term subbing. I am extremely excited to start my second year at Rome Catholic School. Being a mom of 5 children is amazing. My children's names are Adam, Casey, Bailey, Danika and Dalilah (twins).
