Mrs. Candace Zuccaro – 4th Grade
Subjects Taught: 4th Grade
Number of Years Teaching/Number at SSPP: 20 years, 15 at SSPP
What do you love most about teaching at SSPP: “I just love the closeness and “family feel” of our entire school- the faculty and staff, as well as our students and their families. It sounds cliche, but we really DO all seem like family and we care about each other!
Awards/Accolades: Researched and developed a STREAM class with Mrs. Griffasi, “Kitchen Chem-Edible Science,” which we then taught to teachers and administrators from the Diocese of Buffalo. We were then invited to teacher to in the Diocese of Cleveland.
Favorite Book: “Bud, Not Buddy” by Christopher Paul Curtis
Favorite Food: My homemade lasagna, using my mother-in-law’s sauce and meatball recipes.
Favorite Movie: Ever since my childhood, “Wizard of Oz”
Favorite Lesson: “I love my 4th graders our social studies curriculum, which is all about NYS. I especially like teaching them about the construction of the Erie Canal, which is particularity interesting since they’re familiar with it, since it is right in Buffalo and Lockport.”
