About Mr. Coviello

                I became a teacher because I love being given the grand opportunity to mold young minds and build meaningful relationships with students! Since I was an elementary student at Maple Hill, I knew I wanted to be an elementary school teacher. My teachers at Maple Hill were so inspiring and amazing, that I wanted to also be part of that realm. I enjoy working with each and every student in reaching their full potential and beyond! Naugatuck is a special district because it is committed to every one of their students, as well as the families! The biggest reason why I love working at Western School I because every staff member works together to ensure our students succeed. The teachers and staff members here are some of the most wonderful people you can meet!

 I have been very blessed with the opportunity to be teaching Kindergarten this year! I started with Naugatuck Public Schools in 2014 as an intern at Maple Hill completing my Master’s Degree. I also completed my student teaching at Hop Brook in 2015.  I have been at Western School for the previous two years as a Reading and Math Interventionist. This year, I joined the Kindergarten team!
