Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Mari Francescangeli
My name is Mari Francescangeli. I’ve been a member of Saint Jude Parish my entire life – I attended Saint Jude School from Kindergarten through 8thGrade and was married at St. Jude Church in 2015. In 2017, I returned to St. Jude School, but this time as a teacher! This will be my 3rd year as the 3 Day & 5 Day Pre-K teacher, as well as an afternoon CARES teacher.
I graduated from Gwynedd-Mercy Univerisity with a degree in Elementary and Special Education, and am certified in Elementary/Special/Early Childhood Education. I’m currently pursuing my Master of Education degree. I have 12 years of Early Childhood experience which includes teaching various age groups and directing an Early Childhood center. The Early Childhood age group is truly my passion!
What do you need to know about Mrs. F.? I love animals (especially my 2 rescue kitties), traveling with my husband, and spending time with family and friends. My favorite place in the world is Long Beach Island, New Jersey -- I love anything having to do with the beach!
I’m looking forward to a fun year in Pre-K as we all learn and grow together!
