Mrs. Erin View
I have taught Pre-K at St. Francis since 1997. Before joining the St. Francis family I owned my own preschool for five years and was an Early Childhood Education Teacher at Herkimer County BOCES. 

I believe each child brings something unique to the class. It is my goal to provide a safe and nurturing environment for each individual. I feel blessed to share my faith with the children and faculty. I will provide children with hands-on activities and the opportunity for individual discovery . It is important for me to provide a safe and caring environment for each child.  
Mrs. Rebecca Marzeski
I am a member of St. Francis de Sales Church. Recently retired from the public education system with over 30 years of teaching and supervisory experience has filled me with much wisdom, knowledge, and enthusiasm for teaching! 
One of my experiences was teaching first grade for over ten years. I learned as much from each of my students as they did from me! Observing how each child learned over the years has allowed me to refine my instructional techniques to maximize student learning. I then carefully planned learning activities that are rigorous, fun, and engaging. We will be learning how to read and write, solve math problems, and explore the world around us through science and social studies activities. The Catholic religion as well as the arts will be integrated in all subject areas throughout the year. 
I believe parental involvement is crucial for your child's optimal learning to occur. This being said, you are welcome in your child's classroom. If you would like to volunteer or you have any questions concerning your child or his/her education, please do not hesitate to contact me at any time. I look forward, with great expectations, to sharing my faith through many exciting learning adventures and to serving as your child's teacher!

Ms. Donna Dillman
I receved my NYS Teachers Certification and a B.A. in English and Education from SUC at Geneseo and my Masters degree from SUNY Cortland. I taught in the Utica City Schools until my sons were born. Since then I have taught pribate piano lessons and continue to do so. I taught Music here at St. Francis de Sales School from 2000 until 2004. I left to work at a nursing home doing Music activities. I am very happy to return as a Music Teacher this year. St. Francis feels like home and I enjoy working with this dedicated group of teachers in educating and hopefully enriching the lives of students here.
