Ms. Ulla Tervo-Desnick

Hi, Families! My name is Ulla Tervo-Desnick and teach first grade at our school. I have been teaching at SPPS for 26 years in grades 1-3. I grew up in Finland and graduated from The University of Helsinki with a degree in Elementary Education. I also have a master's degree from St. Mary's University. In my spare time I like to read, garden, sing, swim, walk, bike, and spend time with my husband, two daughters, and two grandkids. I travel to Finland every year to see family and friends. I have been teaching children all my adult life and still love it!
