Mrs. Iannone Trivia
I am married to Mark Iannone and God blessed us with 3 awesome kids (2 girls, 1 boy: includes 1 set of twins). My dog's name is Cami (she's a doberman) and over the years we have raised a variety of ducks, turkeys, goats, a pig and other dogs . Right now we are raising Gus and Jesse (Pekin Ducks) and a Rooster who has alot of attitude.
  • My favorite subjects are ART, HISTORY and GEOMETRY.
  • I LOVE TO READ everything and talk about stories.
  • I LOVE sports and still like to play a few.  
  • My favorite teams are the St. John Eagles, the Taft Rhinos, the Gunnery Highlanders, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the Green Bay Packers (and all teams of my former and current students! Holy Cross, Sacred Heart, Canterbury, Watertown High, Thomaston High, Nonnewaug, Wamogo, St. Paul's, Waterbury Career Academy, Chase Collegiate, Hotchkiss)
  • My favorite color is red but I bleed blue and gold.
  • I am a New Jersey native, a former New York City resident & a Connecticut transplant so I cheer for both the Yankees and the Red Sox as well as the Patriots and the Giants.
  • I wish I knew how to play the piano well.
  • I happily use technology in every class & every part of my life, every day.
  • If I won the lottery I would travel to every state in the US and to every country - at least once.
  • I have been lucky to travel to many great places - my favorites (so far) are Rome, Italy, Athens & Santorini in Greece, Chichen Itza & Tulum in Mexico, County Clare & County Kerry in Ireland, Bavaria in Germany, Cairo and the upper Nile River area, Egypt, Zurich, Switzerland, Curacao, the Caribbean and the Bahamas, the Hawaiian Islands, and the Grand Canyon (breath-taking).
  • The most wonderful feeling is that moment when you are struck by your inner creative genius - the AHA! moment.
  • I believe that every person has the ability to be creative.  For me creativity is a part of every learning opportunity - not just art class.
  • One of my favorite books is "The Art of Racing in the Rain" by Garth Stein.
  • This summer I read and recommend: Villa Trieste by Lucretia Grindle, Lilac Girls by Martha Hall Kelly, Simple Genius by David Baldacci, Fish in a Tree by Linda Hunt, The Thing About Jellyfish by Ali Benjamin and The Girl Who Drank the Moon by Kelly Barnhill.  I love to receive book recommendations and swap books.
  • My students often hear me say:
  • "Hard work beats talent when talent doesn't work hard." (credited to many different people)
  • "Gravity always wins." (it's a common sense issue when things fall to the floor repeatedly :)
  • "A drawer is a sliding box that can be filled and is part of a piece of furniture - you are an artist or an illustrator or a draftsman - you are not a drawer." (as in "I'm a good drawer!")
  • “If one man can destroy everything, why can't one girl change it?” (Malala)
