My name is Kristina Giordano, better known as ‘Miss G’. I am LAAA’s Elementary Literacy Specialist and Coach. I joined the ASPIRA team in 2012 and have previously taught 1st - 2nd grades here before working as our Reading Interventionist and Literacy Coach. Primary grades are my absolute favorite to teach! They are such HUGE years for literacy development. The amount of growth that happens never ceases to amaze me!


I grew up in Northern New Jersey, close to New York City, and I love to go home and visit often. My parents and my younger brother, Kevin still live there. I came to Delaware to attend the University of Delaware and earn my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary and Special Education. A few years later, I returned to NYC to receive a Master's degree in Literacy from Teachers College Columbia University. I am now a certified Reading Specialist. Outside of school, I love to travel, read, and spend summers at the Jersey shore.
