Ms. Trista Michalesko
I am a 2008 graduate of Bloomsburg University where I earned a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education and Special Education. I began my teaching career as an Emotional Support Teacher. In 2009 I moved to Downingtown, Pa where I taught K-3 for five years as a Learning Support teacher. In 2014 I accepted the position of Reading Specialist and Literacy Coach. I have continued my love of learning through Cabrini University where I earned my Masters in Education and Reading. Teaching reading is my passion.
I am new to NC and Onslow County. I My classroom is a place where student's are challenged to set goals and work hard to achieve them. I encourage my students to always strive to be the best version of themselves. I love pugs. I have two pugs, Bubba and Dixie. I enjoy spending time with my family, trying new restaurants, and relaxing with a good book. I am excited to be here at Northwoods and I am looking forward to a great year in Third Grade.
