Mr. Pizzo is continuing his tenure at Padonia International Elementary School during the 2022-23 school year after serving as the principal for four years, and previously as the assistant principal for four years (at Padonia).
It is my great pleasure to be given the opportunity to continue to serve Padonia International Elementary School, the students, and the families! The amazing work that occurs here daily with students and teachers is all-inspiring, and I am looking forward to continuing this journey with the world class children, families and staff. Prior to joining the Padonia team, I was the assistant principal at Seventh District Elementary in northern Baltimore County. My time within Baltimore County Public Schools has also included several years as an elementary school teacher in Southeast Baltimore County where my primary focus included intermediate students. I spent several years within the Department of Research, Accountability and Assessment, and have presented at several county, state and national conferences on a variety of topics ranging from mathematics to assessments to multi-cultural school administration. As a lifelong learner myself, I am excited to learn aside the staff, students and families, and look forward to continuing to work with the Padonia school community to support our students!

It is my pleasure to serve as the Assistant Principal of Padonia International Elementary for my second year. Our students, families, teachers, and community make Padonia a dynamic school that is a joy to be a part of each day. Prior to serving as the assistant principal at Padonia, I was a specialist in the Office of Title I for Baltimore County Public Schools. I spent four years in this role and supported Title I schools with centralized programs and supports to meet the needs of all students using federal funding. I have also served as a resource teacher and elementary classroom teacher in kindergarten through fifth grade. I am honored to be a part of team BCPS and have served our school system for over 18 years. I look forward to another productive year with the Padonia team as we work together to support the growth of our amazing Padonia Proud students!
