Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Rita Pinomaki and I will be your child's Transitional Kindergarten teacher. Before coming to St. Edward School, I taught a Pre-K/Young Fives program for 20 years in Menlo Park and Fremont. I have been a director of a childcare center in Fremont and I have owned my own childcare center. I am the product of Catholic School education and it is wonderful coming back to an environment where faith and learning share such a special role in our children's life. Now that my 2 children, Tyler and Brianna, are adults, I am excited to begin a career with St. Edward School as TK Teacher! I currently live in Newark with my husband Brian, a retired firefighter, and our dog Smokey Joe. I am looking forward to an exciting year of love and learning, while shaping our children's futures to become lifelong learners.
