Michelle DeRubeis

Grades 6-8 Teacher / ELA






As a Catholic school educator, I feel that God has given me a great gift in the ability to inform, form, and transform the minds and hearts of our students. As a parent of three children who completed all their years in the Stamford Catholic schools, I appreciate and respect the sacrifices parents make to send their children to our schools. I also know that our schools need to prepare the students to live faith filled lives.  I use that knowledge to ensure they are not only academically prepared but spiritually as well.


I have been blessed to be a part of the Diocese of Bridgeport  school system for many years. I am extremely proud to be a part of the Catholic Academy of Stamford Upper School. I will bring a wealth of knowledge and skills to all my students, instilling in them that we are all lifelong learners.
