About Me

My name is Steve Arato and I grew up in an amazing town in New York called Cold Spring Harbor. I graduated from the College of Charleston in 2000 and later earned my National Board Certification in the area of teaching children with Exceptional Needs. This is my 15th year at Orange Grove and I have loved every second of it! I believe in the need for every child to feel comfortable and confident enough in school to achieve any goal they work towards! 
In my spare time I love to spend time with my wife Maria, and my two children, Gracie (4) and Evan (2). I also love to work out, listen to music, and kayak.
