Hello! My name is Luana Palimetakis, and I am so excited to be a part of the WJG Gator family! This is my 22nd 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 husband, who is also an educator, and our dog, Mr. Feeny. 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 another excellent year in the music classroom at WJG!
