Mrs. Maria Delegeane - Fourth Grade

Welcome to Mrs. Delegeane’s Class Homepage!


Maria Delegeane will be starting her seventeenth year of teaching at Merryhill School. She has close to thirty years of teaching experience at the elementary school level in both the private and public school systems.

When she isn’t teaching, Mrs. Delegeane is an active volunteer in several community groups. During her volunteer time with the Boy Scouts of America, she served as a Den Leader for five years and as an adult Committee Member for Troop 92 in Milpitas, California. She received several awards from the local BSA district for her efforts and leadership.  She also volunteers with Golden State Greyhounds, a group dedicated to rescuing, fostering, and finding forever homes for retired racing greyhounds.

Mrs. Delegeane has a background in music, dance, and theatre and has been trained as a classical dancer. She designs and creates tutus and dance costumes for professional and advanced students. Her passion for dance and art makes her uniquely qualified to produce costumes that support and enhance a dancer’s performance. In addition, she has produced and directed several children’s musical productions and produced and performed in several off-Broadway shows including Fiddler on the Roof, Guys and Dolls, and The Music Man.

 In 2008, Mrs. Delegeane was nominated for Nobel Learning Communities “Teacher of the Year” for her leadership and enthusiasm for teaching.
