Hello! My name is Luana Palimetakis, and I am so excited to be a part of the WJG Gator family! This is my 18th year teaching, and I have taught in Ohio, Virginia, and North Carolina. I am a 2002 summa cum laude graduate of West Liberty University in West Liberty, West Virginia with a Bachelor of Arts in Education. I received my Masters of Arts in Education from Muskingum University in New Concord, Ohio in 2004. In 2017, I was so excited to earn my National Board Certification in Early Middle Childhood Music. It was definitely a rewarding journey.
When I am not teaching music, I enjoy spending time with my family. My husband, Mr. Palimetakis, is the principal of Vanceboro Farm Life Elementary School. We have one furry child, our dog Oscar. The rest of my family lives in Ohio and West Virginia, so I enjoy visits with them throughout the year. I also enjoy distance running and reading for relaxing.
I am looking forward to having an excellent year in the music classroom at WJG!
