About Mrs Rovito

This is Mrs. Rovito’s seventh year working with CPS and Hamilton Elementary after teaching three years in a 6th grade classroom near South Lake Tahoe, Nevada. Mrs. Rovito grew up in Las Vegas and attended the University of Nevada, Reno, where she obtained her Bachelors in Elementary Education and Masters in Elementary Science Education. She has also received the Nevada NASA Space Grant to work with scientists from the Desert Research Institute, the Honeywell grant to attend Space Academy for teachers in Huntsville, Alabama, and has attended the "Send My Teacher" science academy in Jersey City to learn how to better apply physics in her classroom. In addition, Mrs. Rovito has earned the distinction of being National Board Certified in the area of Early Adolescent Science.

With a strong foundation of using inquiry-based science in the classrooms, she is excited to bring her love of science to Hamilton. In her spare time, Mrs. Rovito likes to travel, run, cook, and explore all the fantastic places to eat in Chicago.
