Welcome to First Grade!

Mrs. DiRuzza

My name is Clarice DiRuzza. I love math and science and am excited to teach them to this year’s firsties. This has been a busy summer! I moved to a new house and a new school. I am eager to teach here at Marlboro. I am married to Steve and we have 5 kids. All of them graduated from Marlington and range in age from 18 to 34. 

Our family dog’s name is Summer. 

She loves cheese and peanut butter.

This is my 27th year of teaching. I graduated from Massillon Washington High School and continued my education at Kent State University. My classroom theme is ocean because I’m crazy about ocean animals!

 I love being outside and taking walks. Inside, my favorite hobbies are playing the piano, reading, and cooking (especially Italian food). My favorite color is red, favorite food is manicotti, favorite drink is coffee, favorite candy is Hot Tamales, and favorite vacation is at the beach. My dream trip would be to visit both Scotland and Italy. 

Please don’t hesitate to contact me by email, phone, or Class Dojo.
