Mrs. Harriet Geraci feels as though she has truly “come home” ever since her return to Resurrection in November. Mrs. Geraci is pleased to be back in her classroom with Mrs. Zrebski and to be surrounded by her “new” junior kindergarteners. She is thrilled to see her former students and their families, as well! And, she is deeply touched by the manner in which she has been welcomed back into the Resurrection School community.
Mrs. Geraci was the Junior Kindergarten Director at Resurrection School from 2007-2013. If you were to ask Mrs. Geraci what she enjoyed most while she was away, she would reply spending more time with her extended family and the year she spent working at St. Elizabeth Seton School. At Seton, Mrs. Geraci learned a great deal personally and professionally as she helped to establish and direct that school’s first-ever preschool program, which serves underprivileged students from East Palo Alto.
Mrs. Geraci graduated from Blackford High School in San Jose and earned a Bachelor of Science in Social Sciences from Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo. Later, she obtained a Paralegal Certificate from Santa Clara University. In the field of early childhood development, Mrs. Geraci is a qualified Master Teacher and possesses a Child Development Site Supervisor Permit issued by the State of California Commission on Teacher Credentialing. She is a longtime member of both the National Association for the Education of Young Children and the California Kindergarten Association.
Mrs. Geraci and her husband cherish the time spent with their son, Nicholas, when he is on break from his studies in Political Science at Gonzaga University. (As a young man, Nicholas attended St. Lucy Parish School. He graduated from Bellarmine College Prep in 2013). When possible, the Geraci family loves to travel to Europe!
