Accordingly, ample opportunities for spiritual and intellectual growth are available to all students. Our philosophy of education also reflects an awareness on the part of the staff, of the diversity of economic, social, and cultural differences within the school community. September 25, 2020.

Mrs. Jill Pallante is the 6th, 7th, and 8th grade English Language Arts teacher here at Nativity of Our Lord School.  Prior to her starting here in the fall of 2017, Mrs. Pallante taught at Saints Peter and Paul School in Hamburg.  Before that time, she was an ELA teacher at a public school in the suburbs of Chicago, Illinois.  Mrs. Pallante earned her B.A. in English from the University of Buffalo and her M.A.T. in English from St. Bonaventure University.  Her permanent certification from New York State is in instruction of English in the secondary grades.  Mrs. Pallante loves teaching ELA, as she loves reading and writing.  Being able to watch her students’ skills develop over the three year period she has them is just one thing she appreciates about teaching here.
