Mrs. Petrone-Carter - I have been a teacher of young students for over 27 years, teaching Kindergarten for 13 years, First grade 4 years, Special education 3-5 LD,K-2 Autism, 6th grade gifted, and I owned and was Head Teacher for my own Academic Preschool for 10 years. Our school won academic excellence for the ten years of operation. I am originally from Massachusetts-Go Pats! Celtics! and Sox's! I am married to a wonderful man who served our military and presently a deputy sheriff/ US Marshall division in Alexandria. I have 5 beautiful daughters, all grown living their dreams from Miami, San Diego and Mass. I have two gorgeous grand children ages 3 and 8! I love working with young children- I get excited each year to help the children paint the canvas of learning. Everyday is adventure and a new day of discovery in my class.
