Ms. Dionysia Panagiotopoulos
Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year at Plato Academy! I want to take this opportunity to introduce myself and express my excitement about working with you and your child this school year. My name is Dionysia Panagiotopoulos and I am delighted to have your child in my classroom this school year. I am married and have two children. I received my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education (K-9) from National Louis University and an endorsement in Psychology. I graduated from Teachers College, Columbia University in New York City and received my Master's Degree in Giftedness Education. I have 15+ years of teaching experience in Elementary and Early Childhood Education. My educational and work experience has given my valuable knowledge and helpful exposure to the variety of daily needs of children. I love teaching because I believe that all children can learn. I believe that learning should take place through inquiry, exploring and experience. I will promote exciting, engaging and motivating teaching methods into your child's classroom. I am thrilled about working with you and your child this school year!!
