Welcome to Palermo Elementary School. My name is Mr. Dave Hibbert. I received both my undergrad credentials and my master's degree from SUNY Oswego. I have been teaching for the Mexico Academy and Central School district since 2013. I have been very lucky to work with third graders all of those years. However, I have taught first grade, fourth grade, fifth grade and have been a Special Education Teaching Assistant in many grade levels in different districts. I also have experience in AIS Reading. I thoroughly love what I do and am very lucky to be able to work with the students, their families and the incredible staff here in Mexico Schools.
I look forward to working with you and your child this year. Communication is key. I like the old saying "It takes a village to raise a child!" It really does take everyone to help our children succeed. We are a team and I am excited for what's to come!
