Tess Patalano, Residential Faculty

Tess Patalano was born and raised in New York City.  She attended Hamilton College where she received a B.A. in Creative Writing. While at Hamilton, she studied abroad in Perugia, Italy and also traveled to Uganda where she taught, fundraised, and helped build Lukolo Primary School. After graduating, she worked for Scholastic Inc. in Manhattan as an Editorial Assistant for Parent and Child Magazine. Always hungry to learn, Tess then moved to San Francisco and received her Master’s Degree in English from San Francisco State University where she also taught creative writing classes.  She was hit by the travel bug once again, moved with her partner to Seoul, South Korea and taught English as a Second Language for two years at Ansan University.  Tess is excited to bring her International teaching experience and love of learning to the Maui Prep family. True to her pisces nature, she has a passion for the aquatic. When not scuba diving, you may find Tess swimming, reading, writing, or exploring.
