Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome Starbuck Students!
My name is Mrs. Bova and this is my 11th year at Watertown City School District. I have worked as a Reading Consultant for the past 10 years and truly love what I do! I was raised in Sackets Harbor, NY and graduated high school from there. I have a B.S. in Childhood Education (1-6) and an M.S. Ed in Literacy Education (B-6) and Special Education. I am eager to work with your child(ren) and build a relationship to ensure that trust and learning work hand-in-hand!
I am a mom to a beautiful little girl and I have a love for animals that matches my love for teaching! My daughter and golden retriever keep me very busy when I am not at school. My husband works for Jefferson County Fire & Emergency Management - we all like to take walks together and spend time enjoying the outdoors! I love the Boston Red Sox and enjoy being on the St. Lawrence River with my family. When I am not teaching at Starbuck Elementary, I spend alot of my spare time helping others. I am a New York State certified Critical Care Technician and enjoy teaching CPR to those in need.
I am consistently encouraging the students at Watertown City School District to find a love for reading. In the words of Dr. Seuss: "The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.”
