Donna Pulito grew up in Jensen Beach, Florida, a
small town on the east coast just north of Palm Beach. She studied Journalism
at Marymount Manhattan College in New York City before moving to Jacksonville,
where she graduated from the University of North Florida with a Bachelor of
Arts in Anthropology and minor in English and Education.
Donna believes that her coursework has afforded
her numerous opportunities to study in great depth the similarities and
differences in the way that children from different cultures consume knowledge.
Throughout her college experience, she minored in English and Education where
she was blessed to be able to work with children of different ages and learning
differences in a variety of settings. Donna spent summers working as a Camp
Counselor with the Martin County Parks and Recreation Department and as an
After-School Program Leader at the J.A.S.E. Program. She interned at St. Clair
Evans Elementary School and Twin Lakes Middle School and after graduating was a
Long-Term Substitute Teacher at the Waverly Academy.
During her teaching career Donna has taught
elementary reading and language arts, 7th grade Civics and Intensive Math. This past
year she taught DePaul Students reading, language and mathematics with
Catapult. This experience has awakened a deeper educational passion that she
wasn’t aware she had. Watching the unique ways that the students think and
learn has certainly taught her just as much as she has taught them.
"I look forward to the opportunity to continue to
learn and grow with the DePaul students."
