I am currently entering my twenty first year as an educator. My career began at a school in Bronxville, New York where I taught fourth grade.  Next I adventured to the town I grew up in, Clinton, CT where I taught third grade for two years. And finally I have been teaching at Ridge Road in North Haven  for the last sixteen years, thirteen of this years were in the fourth grade. 


So who is Mr. Annino?

I have been teaching in North Haven for 17 years at Ridge Road School. This year I am very excited to begin a new chapter in my career by teaching Science at the new North Haven Middle School. Over the years I have had many proud moments but one that stands out every year is the participation of the Ridge Road students in the St. Baldrick's events. For many years we participated in the Middle School event with great success and this year we were able to smoothly run our own event, shaving over 60 heads and raising over $35,000.

In addition to being a teacher I am also a husband and father. My family and I have lived in Meriden for 15 years.  My two boys Aiden and Caleb are also middle school students here in Meriden.  Aiden is entering 9th grade and Caleb is entering 7th grade.  You will here me talk about my children often.  I feel it is important to have open communication with my students and sharing my life with them is very important. This allows for open communication between teacher and student.  As a family we enjoy amusement parks, roller coasters, the Red Sox, and the Patriots.

I look forward to getting to know all of you.  If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.
