Welcome to 5th grade! My name is Mrs. Diana Lelinho and I am excited to be teaching English Language Arts and Social Studies at School Four this year. I have been teaching for 14 years and am happy to be apart of the Belleville Community. After graduating with a Bachelor's of Arts Degree in Communications Art from Caldwell College, I left the NY radio station I worked for, to work at an all-girl high school academy in Passaic County. This is where I found my love of teaching. I decided to go back to school where I graduated with a Masters in Urban Education from New Jersey City University. When I am not teaching, I enjoy time with my family, reading, visiting historical sites, teaching dance, and participating in mud runs.
My hope is to inspire my students to be life-long readers and writers.
