Ms. Persico - 3rd Grade

Welcome to Third Grade!
I'm Mrs. Persico and I started teaching at Union Academy in January 2021.  I was born in Long Island, New York and raised in New Jersey.  I dual majored in English and Elementary Education with a an endorsement at Monmouth University, spending a semester abroad at Regents College in London, before graduating in 2012.  In 2016 I moved to Monroe with my now husband and our two dogs.  I taught second grade in Union county for two years and then went on to teach 5th grade in Lancaster for two and a half years before becoming a cardinal.
My husband and I got married in Charlotte in 2018, bought our first home on Monroe in 2019 and have loved North Carolina living with our adorable dogs, Cassie and Frankie.  When I'm not working I love to read, spend time with my friends and family, go to country concerts, play fantasy football, and get pedicures!
