Welcome to the Sixth Grade Home Page!
Marianne Dyogi holds a Bachelor’s degree in Health Science from Cal State Long Beach and a Master’s degree in Elementary Education from Loyola Marymount University. She comes to St. Anthony of Padua with 12 years of experience teaching in the junior high and high school levels for the Archdiocese of Los Angeles.
Mrs. Dyogi’s philosophy for English/Language Arts education keeps our lived experience central to the appreciation of literature and practical applications for creative writing. She helps students identify the lens that they look through when reading an author’s work and encourages them to expand their perspectives by seeking truth and beauty in the world around them. By studying literary works from and about the past, they are empowered to take the best from history and move forward into the future with valuable knowledge to effect positive changes in society. As the children learn to express themselves in the written word, they discover that there is incredible power in what they say to others.
The most treasured moments in Mrs. Dyogi’s classroom have grown out of authentic connections with her students and their parents, as she longs to see each child develop into the person God made him or her to be. As a wife and mother of 4 children, she understands the importance of a lived faith that carries families through times of trials into the joy and peace of Christ. It is her hope and prayer that every encounter she has leads her and everyone she knows one step closer to being a saint.
“You change your life by changing your heart.”
— St. Benedict of Nursia
