Denise Novak

Hello!  My name is Denise Novak.  I currently teach second grade, my favorite grade!   In addition, I have taught fourth, fifth and sixth grade, as well as the primary MD class.  I received my bachelor's degree from the University of Dayton in Elementary Education and Special Education.  I also have a Master's Degree in Education from John Carroll University and hold a school counselor certificate.  I am very lucky to have been at Riverside for many, many years......although the eighth graders will tell you that I am only 21 years old!  I have enjoyed watching so many of our scholars grow up and become the amazing people they are!
