Meet Mrs. DiBattista-
Introducing Mrs. Kellie DiBattista ...
Mrs. DiBattista was born and raised in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. She actually started out as little Kellie Bankos and really didn't become "Mrs. DiBattista" until 1992.
Kellie always loved school, she enjoyed spelling, mathematics and writing since the early days of Cotton Ave. Elementary School (now condemned and demolished :( Her favorite teachers were Mr. Mark Smith (5th grade teacher) and Mr. Novosel (6th grade teacher and principal- in photo below, Kellie is in red shirt)
Kellie also always loved sports. 40 years ago, she was the only girl on the all-boys little league baseball team. She still tries to play softball, but isn't always successful and sometimes hurts herself, so she enjoys coaching softball instead.
Mrs. DiBattista has a wonderful family that lives in the OJR school district, so you probably know them. They enjoy snowboarding, skiing, gardening, riding 4-wheelers and dirtbikes, hanging out with friends and traveling to tropical places.
Mrs. DiBattista loves to learn, she completed her Masters degree plus 60 credits mostly focused on technology. She got REALLY interested in incorporating technology into the classroom and plans to share her knowledge with the students in her classes. She thinks using technology is a lot of fun and it helps engage learners because they have a real audience for their masterpieces on their classroom blog.
She has been teaching for 29 years now. Her first position was as a middle school math and science teacher at Eisenhower Middle School in Norristown, PA. She taught 4th grade for OJR for 20 years and absolutely loved it! She moved back to 6th grade in 2016 and loves the older kids even more! She hopes to be teaching for another 7 years and then retire to a tropical beach in the Caribbean, where you are invited to join her if so inclined :) Anything else you want to know?
