Elise Cappello M.A.T.    ecappello@olmprep.com

Elise is certified in the area of Elementary Education, has her Master of Arts in Teaching from Quinnipiac University, and a BA in English from Pine Manor College in Massachusetts. Elise is an experienced teacher. 

Elise re-entered the workforce after being a stay-at-home mom to her sweet 5 year old son. She recently taught 3rd grade and spent a year as an instructional support teacher.

Elise is looking forward to getting back to OLM Prep and inspiring curiosity in students. She says, “I want to foster the magic and unique gifts every student has inside of them".

I want them to make meaningful choices about their learning, explore, ask questions, and grow so they become lifelong learners who seek answers and know how to problem solve. My job as a teacher is to provide the tools and dynamic environment to facilitate those goals”. One of her favorite quotes is, "The best teachers are those who show you where to look, but don't tell you what to see." We welcome Elise’s energy for student-centered teaching, learning, and creativity.
