Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Mrs. Giusto and I am the third grade teacher in Room A140. I have been teaching in Cleveland Metropolitan School District for twenty-four years. I started at Mount Auburn Elementary School. When they closed their doors, I went up the street to Audubon Junior High School. When Audubon closed, I came to A. J. Rickoff Elementary School. I started as a second grade teacher and then was transferred to third grade. I received my undergraduate degree from The Cleveland State University and my Master's Degree from Ursuline College. I also have my Reading Endorsement. Third grade is a crucial year because of the Third Grade Guarantee. Your child will become a proficient reader and writer in all content areas. This will allow your child to pass all state mandated tests and therefore pass to the fourth grade. I look forward to working with you and your child since we are a team. Let's all work together to help the A.J. Rickoff third grade eagles "SOAR" to new heights and become learners for life!
