Teacher:Sharon DePalo:
My name is Sharon DePalo and I am a teacher for the four-year old program at St. Peter's Nursery Preschool. I currently hold a Bachelor's degree in Communications from Marist College as well as a Master's degree in Elementary and Special Education from Touro College. I taught special education for nine years in a NYC public school, before deciding to stay home to raise my three children.  I have been part of the St. Peter’s family for more than 6 years as a parent, now I am excited to be there as a teacher.  I fell in love with St. Peter’s when I was choosing a two year old program for my oldest son.  I could instantly tell that St. Peter’s was a warm and welcoming program with so much love for the children.  I am looking forward to being part of a great program and working with such special children.

Assistant: Nadine Bias
My name is Nadine Bias. I am beginning my 17th year at St. Peter's. This year I will be working as an Assistant in Mrs. DePalo's 4-year-old class and Mrs. Rea's 3 year old class. In the past, I have been an  Assistant for a four year old class, a three-year-old class, a two year old class, as well as, a lead teacher in the two year old room. I have found each of the ages has their own challenges and rewards. I am excited to once again be working in a fun filled learning experience with three-year-olds. My husband and I have both been Huntington residents all our lives and have three wonderful children. I began working at St. Peter's when our youngest entered preschool. From the very first day, St. Peter's was like a second family to me. Supportive parents, encouraging colleagues, and enthusiastic students make the everyday adventure of teaching preschool even that much more enjoyable.

Assistant: Nicole Daquara:
I began substituting at  St. Peter's Nursery Preschool 18 years ago when both my children attended the wonderful program here. Since then, I have held positions as an Administrative Assistant in the Office and have been a Teacher's Assistant in the 2-year-old program and Mommy and Me program during the school year and  Leader in the Mommy and Me program during the summer program.  I currently enjoy working as a Teacher's Assistant in both the MWF 4-year-old program and TTh 2 year-old program.  Being able to watch some of our children start and finish their journey here at St. Peter's is something I really look forward to experiencing.  It never ceases to amaze me how much they grow and learn.
