Buon giorno!  iBuenos días!

I am Mrs. Galasso and I teach Italian (and have taught Spanish) here at North Haven High School. 

For the 2021-2022 school year I am teaching:

  • Italian 1 
  • Italian 2 (both general and honor level)
  • Italian 5 (both general and honor level)

In addition to my teaching responsibilities, I am also a co-advisor of the Italian Club, advisor of the Italian Honor Society, a member of the PBIS (Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports) team, COLT (Connecticut Organization of Language Teachers), and AATI (American Association of Teachers of Italian).


Students and parents can reach me anytime via email or by calling the high school, 203-239-1641, ext. 2223.

Rather than a spiral notebook and folder, I suggest students purchase  a 1 &  1/2 inch three ring binder (better for keeping handouts and work together) and students should always bring pens or pencils for class. 

My teaching philosophy is very simple, all students can learn in the right environment. As the classroom teacher, it is my job to create a safe, nurturing environment that develops their confidence while providing students with strategies, resources and support that fosters their growth.
