Teachers of NCDS: Dr. Montalbano

Katelyn McGauley

Dr. Montalbano is a new teacher in the language department and blue team this year. He teaches 7th and 8th grade, French 1, 2, 3, and Honors French 3. He is also a 7th grade homeroom teacher, but he says, “Thanks to my students, it is nothing but joy!” He grew up in Lyon, France and has wanted to be a teacher since he was young. Dr. Montalbano loves to travel within the U.S., read good books, watch independent movies, and  is a “foodie at heart!” When asked if there was anything people at NCDS do not yet know about him, he says, “I am an avid fan of Japanese animes and regularly watch a variety of them although they are intended for a much younger audience.” When asked about his favorite television shows, Dr. Montalbano said while it is difficult to choose, he likes Game of Thrones and The Good Fight, but there are many contenders.
