A little about me...

My name is Maria Ielati.  I am so excited to join the Cabarrus County Virtual Academy.This is my fifth year teaching in Cabarrus County.  Before coming to the Virtual Academy I taught at A.T. Allen Elementary in 3rd grade and Kindergarten. In 2016 I relocated from New York City with my husband and daughter, who is a fourth grader this year. She is also excited to join the Virtual Academy.  This will be my 20th year as a classroom teacher.  I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education, as well as a Master’s Degree in Students with Disabilities.  I am also certified in ESL.    When I am not at school I enjoy spending time with my family, taking road trips and DIY projects.


Communicating with me...

Email is the best way to reach me.  My email is I will also set up a REMIND for all families.  This will make our communication easy!






I look forward to working with you and your child this year.  Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.  You can email me at
