My name is Annie Vitale and I can't wait to teach your 4th grader at UP this year! My husband, Joe, and I moved to Dallas two years ago and we have really enjoyed living here and exploring this great city! We recently welcomed our baby boy Enzo into the world at the beginning of June so we have been busy loving on him all summer!
I’m a Nebraska girl at heart – I’ve lived in Lincoln and Omaha for all of my life. I have been teaching since 2003 when I graduated from Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska. I taught 3rd grade for 8 years in Omaha Public Schools and then taught 5th grade for 3 years in Elkhorn, a smaller suburb of Omaha. I earned my Master’s Degree in Reading Education from the University of Nebraska-Omaha and have a certified Reading Specialist endorsement.
In my free time, I enjoy walking my dog, going to movies, trying new restaurants, and reading. We love to travel and have a long list of places to visit around the world. One of my favorite trips was to Ireland. I also like watching sports and going to concerts. That said, most of our time has been devoted to Enzo snuggles at home recently :)
I’m so looking forward to working with everyone here at UP and teaching your children. This is definitely my life’s passion and I can’t wait to provide a positive, happy, and inspiring educational experience for your kids!
