Mr. James Maccario
Greetings! My name is James Maccario. I have been a teacher for over ten years. I have worked with children as young as infants all the way up to third grade. I got a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology and a Master's Degree in Elementary Education from Northeastern University, which is in Boston, MA.
I was born and raised in Upper Darby. I attended Bywood Elementary School as a student many years ago! I also attended Beverly Hills Middle School and Upper Darby High School before leaving the area to go to college. After spending 6 years in Boston, I decided to return to Pennsylvania. After a number of years teaching in various schools and child care centers, I found myself back here at Bywood, where my education began.
In my classroom, we love superheroes and we incorporate that into our learning. When we do and say things, we think about whether it's something a hero would say or do. If it is, that's great. If it's not, we think of better things to say and do.
I am always available to discuss and work with all the families in my class. The BEST way to contact me is via email. You can also call the school and I will get back to you when I can.
Here's to another great school year!!!
