Ms. Raffaela Silecchia

     Ciao, Sono Raffaela Silecchia. I am originally from Queens, New York. Growing up, I spoke Italian with my family as well as Barese, a dialect of the region of Puglia. I graduated from the City University of New York with an MS Ed in Italian, Spanish and Secondary Education.  I studied for a year at the Universita` di Bologna in Italy.  I am certified to teach both Italian and Spanish in New Jersey.  This is my 12th year teaching World Languages.  I love Italian language and Italian culture.  I'm so glad to teaching Italian to the wonderful students at Jackson Memorial High School.
