Ms. DeLuca - Room 113

Hello 1st Grade Families!

My name is Elisa DeLuca, and I will be your child’s 1st Grade teacher this year!  I am excited to begin my 23rd  year teaching in Minneapolis.  I taught kindergarten for 21 years and this is my second year teaching First Grade. Hiawatha is a wonderful place to teach!

Let me tell you a little bit about myself. I live in Minneapolis with my husband (Patrick) and my daughter (Hailey).  Hailey attends St. Catherine University.  We have two dogs,  Max and Lola - both boxers. They love long walks and playing with each other. When I’m not teaching, I love to

read, go on walks, drink coffee on my porch, go boating, and spend time with family and friends.

I feel very fortunate to be your child’s teacher this year and look forward to many new learning adventures.  First grade is an exciting year!

If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to call me at school (612) 668-4610 or email

We are going to have so much fun in First Grade! 

   Ms. DeLuca
