About Our Fifth Grade Teachers 

Mr. Chris Fidotta 

Hey Bullfrogs! This will be my 4th year at GSCES and 7th year in MCPS. I am originally from New York. I graduated from SUNY Cortland with a degree in Elementary Education. When I am not teaching I enjoy playing hockey, watching football, and spending time with family and friends. I am excited for another amazing year of learning!

Ms. Irena Hall 

Hi! I'm Irena Hall and I am thrilled to be teaching fifth grade at The Creek! This will be my third year at Great Seneca Creek ES and my seventh year teaching! I received my Bachelor's degree at University of South Florida. I am also certified in ESOL with a Gifted endorsement. I'm currently continuing my education by earning a Master's degree in Educational Leadership at Hood College. I previously taught at Wilson Wims Elementary School in Clarksburg. I have taught 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade during my career. My husband and I live in Clarksburg MD with my twin daughters, Jasmine & Hailey, and our son, Alex. When I am not at school I enjoy traveling, hiking, concerts, and spending time with my family.
