Sara Catalinatto

High School SETSS
Greetings Lyons staff, students and families.  I am Sara Catalinotto, also known as Ms. Cat. I grew up attending public schools in Brooklyn and Manhattan.  
After pausing my college career to try a construction apprenticeship, I earned a B.A. in Math at San Francisco State University and the M.A. in Pure Math at Hunter College.
I have been teaching full or part time since 1989 in middle school, high school, and community college.  
When Lyons opened, I taught 9th grade and then took a year off to study Special Education methods at Lehman College.  Since returning to Lyons, I have been responsible for working with small study groups ranging from grades 6-12, organizing IEP meetings, and more.  
I like introducing students to books they might enjoy and connecting subject teachers with resources that might interest their students. 
I am married with two children but one is away at college (I'm the one on the left in the picture).   My advice to Lyons students: Open your mind and trust that any skill or concept can become easy when we break it down together.
