• Hello Fabulous Fifth Graders and Families!

    My name is Mrs. Colleen DeFonzo.  I am the English Language Arts teacher for fifth grade at Marion-Walker, which means I teach reading, writing, and word study/vocabulary.
     
    I grew up in Woolrich, which is about a half-hour from Bellefonte.  I attended Penn State University, graduating in 2005.  This is my seventeenth year of teaching, and my twelfth year teaching fifth grade at Marion-Walker Elementary. 

    I live in Bellefonte with my husband, our children, Natalie and Vincent, and our cat Gypsy.  
        
    Some of the things I enjoy are reading, running, and spending time with my family and friends.
