Greetings! My name is Janet Barracato, and I am delighted to be part of the Wolcott Hill Preschool team!
Family is a significant part of my life. I am a wife to my loving husband, Michael Barracato, and a proud mom to three wonderful children – Michael, Joseph, and Janae. Additionally, I have been blessed with seven fantastic grandchildren – Grace, Joey, MJ, Calvin, Mia, Andrew, and Lincoln, which fills my heart with joy.
Throughout my life, I have had a passion for helping and teaching children. This passion drove me to pursue a Master’s Degree in Early Childhood and Special Education. For 27 years, I had the privilege of working with the New York City Board of Education.
Over the past seven years, I have been a part of Wolcott Hill Preschool, serving as a Teacher’s Aide. Witnessing the spark within young minds – their inquiries, creativity, and resilience – motivates me to dedicate myself wholeheartedly each day.
For twenty years, I was actively involved with Levittown Baptist Church, and currently, I attend Shelter Rock Church. My faith plays a pivotal role in shaping who I am. Therefore, I firmly hold the belief that each child is special and treasured, which serves as a compass guiding my endeavors to assist children in their development and learning.
