Anita Pizzo, Ed.D.

CLDE Teacher Leader

I love working with students to give them the language tools they need to be successful in any environment. I am committed to social justice and want to students to use their sense of agency to change the world.

About Me

I was born and raised in North Dakota. I live in Aurora with my husband, two sons, one daughter, and an ornery chiweenie. When I have free time, I enjoy reading, running, and taking the kids for walks.
