• Welcome to First Grade and the beginning of an exciting year!  My name is Peg Pizano.  Many of you have seen Mary Pizano and we are the same person!  My full name is Mary Margaret; Peg is an old Irish form of Margaret.  I know, confusing, but please call me Peg.  I am looking forward to a fun and successful school year.  My husband Max and I live in Albertville with our 2 children.  Max is an independent insurance agent.  We have a son Dominic, 16 years old, who plays on the Varsity STMA High School soccer team and runs the hurdles for the track team.  He also is a 2nd degree black belt in karate.  He loves to read and play piano.  Our daughter Sophie is 12 years old and loves music!  She plays the clarinet, guitar, ukulele and piano.  She also loves to ride her bike, any kind of skateboard, and gets to ride horses once a week.

    I am originally from W. St. Paul, and attended the University of Minnesota where I received my undergrad in Kinesiology, a Pre-K teaching license, a K-8 teaching license and finally my Masters of Education in 2008.  I have been teaching at Hoover since 2005.  I taught kindergarten for 11 years.  I am now in my 4th year of teaching first grade.  Outside of school I like to go biking on my road bike with Max, workout and lift weights, read, watch movies, landscape, garden and sit outside by our fire pit listening to some good music while hanging out with friends.  

    I am very excited about this school year!  We have so many fun and exciting things to do and learn.  I look forward to getting to know your child and family.  Thank you for supporting your child's education!  I am excited to work with your child and watch their growth.  Together we can help your child achieve success!!
    Mrs. Pizano
