Ms. Gina Falciglia

Hello, my name is Ms. Gina Falciglia. I grew up on Long Island, N.Y. I have a dual bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and Psychology from Dowling College. I have been in the teaching profession for over 20 years in different positions and schools, but I finally found my school family as a first-grade teacher here at Vandora Springs in 2019. I LOVE being a teacher. It has been my passion since I was in second grade. It is amazing to see when a child has a light bulb moment, and everything he/she has been learning all makes sense to him/her. I have a genuine love for learning, and I try to pass that on to all of my children while they are in my class. Together there isn’t anything we can’t learn! There are 5 people in my family; me, my husband Joe, my son Anthony, my daughter Josie and my mother-in-law Lillian. We have 5 dogs and 4 cats.
