Mrs. Denise Gizzo » Home


Welcome to my classroom! My name is Denise Gizzo, and I am excited to be teaching English Language Arts and Writing to the third-grade students and the fourth-grade students at School Ten during the 2020-2021 school year. Teaching is a second career for me. After graduating with a Bachelor's of Arts Degree in English from LaSalle University in Philadelphia, I worked for many years as a manager at a pharmaceutical company. In 2010, I earned a Post-Bacceulearuate teaching certificate from Caldwell College and then starting working in the district. In my spare time, I love to read (especially biographies and historical fiction). I also enjoy watching my sons play sports and spending time with my family and friends.

My goal is to instill a life-long love of reading and writing in your child. If you need to contact me during the school year, you can call the school or send me an e-mail at


Welcome Back!

I am very excited to see all of my students this month. This year in both third grade and in fourth grade, we will be reading a variety of interesting texts in ELA and learning how to write different types of narratives.  We will also work on grammar, spelling, and vocabulary.  I can't wait to hear about the books you read this summer!
