My name is Mia LaFata and I am honored to teach at St. Mary School. This is my first year with the Saint Mary community and staff. I am very excited to be a part of such a caring, generous and hardworking group of individuals.

I have my Bachelor’s in Education from St. John’s University and am certified in Middle School Mathematics. I also obtained a Master’s in Educational Technology from LIU Post. I worked in public school teaching middle school mathematics. I taught a Regents Algebra Course over the summer. I am looking forward to many more mathematical and science experiences with the sixth graders here at St. Mary School.

I hope to inspire my students to solve real life and abstract problems. To carry their understanding to high school and hopefully become a mathlete like me!
