Ms. DeBoni is so excited to teach first graders at Equitas Academy 3! She was drawn to teaching and Equitas specifically because she is inquisitive and is excited to instill a sense of curiosity in the smallest learners to become lifelong learners. Ms. DeBoni went to Michigan State University where she graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Anthropology. She grew passionate about teaching while tutoring at a homeless shelter in Chicago. From there, she went on to DePaul University to earn a Master of Education in Elementary Education. She has worked with students at all levels of elementary school and taught science with an emphasis on inquiry to third-sixth graders in Chicago for three years. Ms. DeBoni has been the mentor in many after school clubs including a computer programming club and a chemistry club that won the city finals two years in a row. In her spare time she enjoys road trips, swimming, and eating pizza! Ms. DeBoni can’t wait to meet her new scholars and their families at Equitas Academy 3 and begin our learning journey!
