Ms. Darya

Welcome to PreK!

My name is Darya Fidelman. I started teaching in St.Paul Public Schools in 2012. 

I have a passion for making school fun and comfortable for all students, while at the same time, inspiring them towards academic excellence. I hope to work very closely with families to ensure that every student has a successful year. I love doing Home Visits, if you do not know what that is, ask me about it! 

I have lived in Minneapolis my entire life. I come from a family of six and a family of teachers. I am the youngest in my family by two minutes ( I have a twin sister, who is a PreK teacher in Minneapolis), two older sisters and one brother. A couple of my family's favorite things to do together are going camping at Gooseberry Falls and kayaking on Lake Superior. 

The easiest way to reach me and stay connected is through Seesaw!

I look forward to working with all the families that are apart of my classroom to build a strong connection through home and school!
