About Teacher



Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Denise Falcigno

Welcome to my class!!  My teaching career began in 1989 at Parkwood High School where I taught for 21 years.  I transferred to Cuthbertson High in 2010, where I retired in 2019 to become a Union Academy Cardinal!!

I grew up in Monroe, NC and attended Unionville Elementary School, Piedmont Middle and Piedmont High school. I attended Peace College in Raleigh my first two years, where I earned an Associate's Degree.  During this time, Peace College was a two-year women's junior college affiliated with the Presbyterian Church.  After graduating from Peace College, I transferred to UNC Chapel Hill, where I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Secondary Math Education.

I have a younger brother who works in sales and my wonderful mother lives near us both.  My father passed away from a brain tumor during my first year of teaching and two years later my mother met my stepfather, Joe. I gained four new incredible siblings and the most amazing stepfather!  We lost him to cancer before my first year at Cuthbertson but the memories we have will last a lifetime! 

On December 15, 2018, I married my best friend, Bob. My husband is from Brooklyn, NY and has two children who captured my heart when I met him.  Katelyn is a senior at Early College and Robbie will be a junior at UA!  We also have two rescue kitties named Harley and Pumpkin.         

The beach is my happy place!  I love the sound of the ocean and waves and just relaxing in the sun!
