6th - 8th Grade Language Arts Teacher
Ana Garzaro joined the St. Brendan School community in the fall of 2020 as a middle school Language Arts teacher, teaching grammar, vocabulary, and study skills. She chose St. Brendan School for its dedicated and empathic community, in which she hopes to grow and thrive. Ana holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in English and a Preliminary Single Subject Credential in English with an English Learners Authorization from Mount Saint Mary’s University. She is currently in the process of clearing her credential through an Induction Program at MSMU by spring of 2025. She is also projected to add a Multiple Subject Credential by fall of 2024 and a Masters of Arts in Education by spring of 2026. Her dedication to be a lifelong learner is something she hopes to inspire in all her students.
Ana holds all her students to high expectations and believes that with a growth mindset anything is achievable. “The capacity to learn is a gift; the ability to learn is a skill; the willingness to learn is a choice.” - Brian Herbert
When she’s not in a classroom, Ana enjoys reading, listening to K-pop, painting, visiting local cafes and museums, and spending time with friends and family.
