Welcome to Kindergarten, Room 102! My name is Gwendolen Wisinski Pirisino. This will be my 3rd year at BMES and PWCS, but my 19th year teaching kindergarten here in Virginia. I am very passionate about early childhood education and my goal is to help develop life-long learners.

I was born and raised in Chicago, but have been living in the DC Metro area for the last 20 years. I earned my B.S. in Biology at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign and my M.Ed in Elementary Education from The George Washington University. 

I live with my husband, two daughters, a very spoiled rescue mutt, a bunny, and several fish in Gainesville. I love exploring nature with my dog and the kids, reading, running, cooking, all animals/nature, and Science!

I am looking forward to an amazing year working with you!
