Hello! I am Liza Clemente and I have been teaching at MCB for six years, including the Pre-K/K Sky Room and Sun Room upstairs. I graduated from RIC with a BA in elementary education and a minor in psychology. I live in Riverside, RI. My favorite colors are blue and green. In my free time I love to take walks, bike ride on the East Bay bike path, go boating and spend time by the water on any given beautiful day. Shopping, going to the movies/theater and dining at a good restaurant (seafood is my favorite) are also some of my favorite pastimes. I am looking forward to meeting you and working with your children.
