• Hello everyone!!  As you know, my name is Mrs. Catala, but the kids like to call me Mrs. C.  I am so happy to be at P.S. 329 in what is my 2nd year as a Special Education Teacher.  It is my belief that every child is capable of success when they are in a supportive learning environment with teachers who believe in them.  I tell my students on a daily basis how empowered they are to achieve greatness and overall success.  I set high expectations for my students and push them to strive for excellence.  I cannot wait to see what greatness their futures have in store!!
    I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Touro College with a Master's Degree in General & Special Education.  I also hold a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology.
    When I am not teaching, I enjoy singing, dancing, painting, and spending time with my husband and 5 year old daughter Emily Marie. I love rollercoasters, watching funny movies, going to the beach, and cheering on the P.S. 329 basketball team...GO SURFSIDE SHOOTING STARS!!! I am  very excited to continue my career at P.S. 329 and look forward to all of the memories to be made.
