Welcome to First Grade

Hello! My name is Mrs. Mallare. I have been a homeroom teacher in Catholic Schools since 2010. I always wanted to be a teacher and I love my job! I have taught all grades but my FAVORITE is 1st! I am married with 1 son and 2 dogs. I love to garden, swim, and eat! I have a CA Clear Credential and a Master’s Degree in Education. I have a specialized certificate in Blended Learning from Santa Clara University. 

My class motto is Together We Are Better. That includes students AND families. I look forward to partnering with you!

My instructional assistant is Mrs. Merletti, who is in the class with us every day. Her children were St. Agnes students, too, so she has been part of our St. Agnes community for a long time.


Homework packets are given to students each Monday with a cover sheet outlining the expectations. These packets are due back on Friday of the same week.

Homework should take no more than 20 minutes, including nightly reading.  

Parents are an important part of making homework a positive experience for their children.  Therefore, I ask that you make homework a priority in your household.
