Hi! My name is Denise Palasz.
I am the Middle School Math teacher and K-8 Math Interventionist. I'm excited to be a part of the St. Thomas Aquinas community, and I look forward to meeting the students and families.
I am a firm believer in the benefits of Catholic education. I went to Catholic grade school, and earned my bachelor's degree in business at St. Norbert College. Through a special program at Mt. Mary College and Alverno College, I earned my master's degree in education.
This year will be my 14th year of teaching. I started my teaching career as a 5th grade classroom teacher, and have slowly evolved into specializing in Math. My goal is for all students to enjoy the challenge of mastering a difficult math concept. I will do my best to help my students come to love math (or, at the very least, not be afraid of it)!
In my free time I enjoy spending time with my daughter and her family. I am also working on perfecting my golf game. In winter, I like board games and playing cards.
