For the past seven years, Katie Arcoleo has shared her love for science with the students of Piedmont Middle School. She started her career at our school after graduating from UNC Charlotte with a degree in middle grades education for math and science.
"I teach because I want to spark kids' interest in science! Science is such a fun subject to learn, and I love watching students' eyes light up when something clicks," she says. "I also love building relationships with each of my students; watching them as they grow up is amazing!"
A native of Hickory, NC, Mrs. Arcoleo enjoys hiking with her dog, Sierra, and spending time with her husband on the tennis court. We are proud to have her representing Piedmont Middle as Teacher of the Year!
