Mrs. Ciara DiNapoli


I am Ciara DiNapoli and I am one of our Instructional Coaches. You may be familiar with me in other roles here, however, as I USED to be the Creative Drama teacher and a Kindergarten teacher here at VFLE.   This is my 18th year of teaching and my 10th at VFLE. My husband, Vince, and I have three kiddos: Christian, Laila and Maia.  Our house is full of love, excitement, energy.  I have a BFA in Theatre Arts Education from UNC-Greensboro and an M.Ed. in Language and Literacy from UNC-Wilmington.  I am certified in Theatre Education K-12, Elementary Education K-6, and Reading Instruction K-12.  

My Mission Statement: 

I love my students unendingly and I love teaching them.  What I want most of all is that they love learning just as much. My mission is to provide a safe place where my/our children feel loved, valued, and can find their “genius”. I  believe in these key pieces of education:  Arts, conversation, and opportunity and that these 3 are critical and vital in repairing and maintaining our society of children who will grow into the LEADERS of our world— reestablishing empathy, compassion, value of life, respect for diversity, boldness to use their voices, and selfless interdependence.

I am excited to see your child's face this year in the halls every day and I look forward to teaching them and building a relationship with them.  I know they will be AWESOME Leaders!

It is my promise to you that they will have a safe and inviting place to learn when they are with me. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of their educational journey and a part of their lives!
