The Phoenix

Mrs. Giancola rarely appears in the morning without her stainless steel Starbucks coffee cup glued to her hand. Literally. She wields a red pen like a ninja and smiles while doing so. A self-proclaimed student of the media, Mrs. G. can fill you in on all the latest athletic, entertainment and political happenings. Her favorite fictional character is none other than British Secret Service Agent, James Bond. If you catch Mrs. G. off guard, you may see her mouthing the iconic phrase, “Bond. James Bond.” There’s no cause for concern though, as her young daughter and son frequently bring her back to reality (and stain her clothes – which explains the occasional odd splotch on her outfit).

Mrs. Giancola, Adviser
