Ms. Caitlin Quattrone
Ms. Quattrone teaches third grade. She encourages her students to find the joy in learning.
Why do you teach?
I wanted to be a teacher for as long as I can remember! I was painfully shy as a child and was always terrified to make a mistake. I had some amazing teachers who allowed me to feel comfortable in the classroom and encouraged me to come out of my shell. I recognized early on that I wanted to do the same for others. My students inspire me every day, and I cannot imagine doing anything else!
Why do you teach at Mason Prep?
I love teaching at Mason Prep because it is such a small, close-knit community. It is so great to really get to know the families of the students I teach.
What do you want your students to get from having known you?
I want my students to realize that they are more capable than they may believe. I want them to learn to push themselves and celebrate even the smallest victories. I want them to feel comfortable making mistakes and find the joy in learning!
What is the most important life lesson that you want your students to take from your class?
One lesson I would like for my students to take away is learning to be accepting of others and their differences. I want them to understand that everyone is unique and our differences should be celebrated. I want them to see that everyone has strengths and weaknesses, and it is so important to support one another rather than bring each other down. In a world where you can be anything, be kind!
What do you like to do for fun?
My favorite thing to do is to travel and explore new places! I also enjoy coaching a youth dance team, playing in an adult kickball league, and spending quality time with friends and family.
