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!
