Here is what Mr. Pignatiello has to say…


about his job:
I love the kids! You have a group of adults (administration, teachers, support staff, community members, and families) all working together to get the best out of every student. The students can feel that effort and provide the positive interactions that keep all of us coming back every day and giving our best efforts.

about his goals:
Learning for All! This is a District that prides itself on that philosophy. Our goals are developed within a learning community and that same community works in collaboration to achieve those goals. Providing opportunities for all individuals to learn, grow, and reach their potential is was District 146, and Fierke, is all about!

about himself:
I am a very lucky family man! I have a wonderful wife and am the proud father of twin daughters and one son. My children do a great job keeping us busy with school, sports, and other activities. We try to get involved in a variety of opportunities to help shape our children’s diversity as individuals. In my free time, which I have very little of, I like to exercise, golf, fish, boat, grill and ride.
