All About Me!

Hi. I'm Mr. Patrick Festa and I teach third grade at the Plaza.

I have been teaching for 36 years and have spent the past 23 years at the BEST school -McNichols Plaza !

The Plaza is near and dear to my heart as both of my now grown children attended elementary school here and I am so happy for that.

I believe in the critical role of public education in producing productive and informed citizens .

Teaching  is a job that runs in my family as my father was an educator ,as was my brother. Now, my own daughter has begun her career as a teacher.

Looking forward to a great year!
