Anna Sapienza

HI!  I am Anna and I teach the third grade students here at MLC. 

As a native Oregonian I am so excited to be at a school with such a rich history, in a lovely part of our beautiful city.  I come from a large family, and love that I have never had a student with more siblings than I have.  My husband Justin is also a native and works for PPS.  We have two adventurous children who entertain us and keep us very busy!

I have happily been at MLC for seven years now.  I first came as a lucky student teacher from the PSU Graduate School of Education in 2003.  This is my sixth year teaching third grade, but I did spend a few years away.  My first year as a teacher was at Bridger Elementary with kindergarteners and recently I took a year off to be with my own children.   It feels great to be back!  I absolutely love our school community and third grade.
