Marist welcomed back math teacher Anne Lotito for a second stint in the classroom. She first taught at Marist from 2005 to 2011. She then took time off to be home with her three sons and is now back.
When Lotito started to look for a job last spring, she reached out to Marist Curriculum Coordinator Julie Kamper in the Math Department to ask her for a letter of reference. Little did she know, there was an opening at Marist. “When I went on the interview I wasn’t positive about what I wanted to do because I thought I wanted to find something closer to my house,” Lotito explained. “But when I walked in the door, Larry Tucker was standing waiting for me with a big smile and gave me a hug. At that moment and throughout that day I was reminded of how great all the faculty and staff are at Marist.” She saw many people that day with whom she used to work and realized how much she missed being around them. “Marist is an amazing community of people. I knew when I left that if they offered me the job I definitely wanted to come back to Marist.”
Lotito will teach Algebra 1 Academic and Geometry Academic this year. She is excited to get back in the classroom and get to know all of her students.
A standout athlete in her high school and college days, Lotito still stays active playing ice hockey. Hopefully, her athleticism will help out the faculty teams at pep rallies this year.
She earned a Bachelor of Science in information systems from DePaul University, teaching certification from Northern Arizona University, and a master’s in math education from DePaul.
