Creative Minds of Northern New York is the dream of two educators who have spent their lives in public education. Teachers Paula Amato and Jennifer Hanno each have over 25 years of classroom experience teaching Language Arts. Together, their teaching experience spans the range of Pre-K to Post Secondary levels. They have been trained in the Common Core, Reading Recovery, Guided Reading, Shared Inquiry and many other critical areas of educational research and design. Their passion for teaching reading and writing defines them.
