My name is Liz Banta, and I am teaching third grade this year. This is my third year teaching at St. Veronica and my tenth year teaching overall in the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. My first seven years were spent teaching the second grade at St. Francis Seraph, a CISE school in Over-the-Rhine.
I attended and received my Bachelor's degree from The College of Mount St. Joseph, and then completed my Masters in Reading through Xavier University.
My husband Neil and I have a 4 year old daughter, Kyrie, a new baby boy Mason who was born this past April, and three dogs. We are both avid fans of the Cincinnati Reds and enjoy cheering them on at as many games as possible. I love reading, crafts, and being active, and it's my passion to share as much of this as I can with my students. I am also the lead person for our school in regards to the Flying Pig Marathon Kids 26th mile and 5K events, both of which take place in May.
