Laryssa Rastrelli

Howdy! My name is Laryssa Rastrelli, and I am the 4th grade Math and Science teacher. I am also the proudest member of the Fightin' Texas Aggie Class of 2008! I grew up in San Antonio, Texas and moved to Dallas eight years ago to start my work with CCA as a Special Education teacher. After a year in Kindergarten and five years teaching first grade, I wound up here teaching Math and Science, and I love it! Math was never my strongest subject growing up, and I had a strong distaste for it until college. Then, I finally had a few Math professors who explained things in a way I could understand and made Math fun. I love sharing my story with struggling students who don't like Math and feel like they will "never be good" at it. They might just end up teaching it one day. :)
