• Hello! My name is Christina Petrella, and I am thrilled to be working with you and your child this school year. 

    I completed my bachelor’s degree in elementary and middle school education from Marquette University. Currently, I am pursuing an English as a Second Language certification. 

    I am so excited for the new school year. In 1st  grade, I look forward to working with Nelson’s team of teachers, administrators, you, and your child towards achieving success this school year. Together, I am confident that we can overcome any challenge and enhance your student’s strengths that will allow them to reach their goals. 

    I value the insight and understanding that you have of your child. With that being said, please feel free to contact me anytime throughout the school year at cpetrella@emsd63.org . Whether it’s in regards to your child’s academic performance, behavior, or just to check in, I am eager to partner with you in anyway I can.


    Warm regards,

    Mrs. Christina Petrella
