• 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.  We have a son Dominic, 15 years old, who loves to read, play soccer and football and recently became a 2nd degree black belt in karate.  Our daughter Sophie is 11 years old and loves to sing, play the clarinet, ride her bike, ride horses and also do karate.  She is an advanced red belt.  

    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 3rd 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 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
