Faculty and Staff of The Lower School

Mrs. Christine Lacharite
1st Grade Teacher    clacharite@icschool.net

I have been at Immaculate Conception School for more than 20 years. During this time I have taught kindergarten and grades 5, 2 and 1. I have a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from Framingham State College and a Master of Education with an Early Childhood Concentration from Worcester State College. My state certification is k-8. In addition, I keep current by taking graduate courses and attending workshops.

I believe first grade is special because we learn so many new and important skills. My favorite part is helping the children learn to read. My hope is that first grade is an exciting place to be for all my students. I am happy to be a part of the ICS community.

Mrs. Digna Montes de Oca
Lower School Secretary   


Mr. Daniel Caruso
Music and Chorus Teacher   


Mrs. Gilda Vilanni
Spanish Teacher
Grades Pre-School through 8

I am from Italy, I came to the US fifteen years ago, I learned English and studied Spanish at Worcester State University before I raised my family. I have five children, ranging from 14 to 8 years old.
Now that my children are more independent and I have more time, I decided to teach. I love languages and I want to share this love with my students. I hope that they will come to enjoy Spanish, I hope that they will gain more confidence in learning a new language. I will continue with Mrs. Kellett’s curriculum and make changes as needed along the way.

I have a “Laurea in Economia e Commercio” ( Master Degree in Economics ), while I was getting my degree in Italy, I tutored elementary and middle school students on various subjects. After I came to the US, I was a part time teacher, I am certified to teach Italian.
I am very excited to teach Spanish for many years to come.
