Ms. Aariana McIntosh
Aariana McIntosh began working with kids in 2018, although she originally thought she might be an art teacher or music teacher or science teacher. The decision was difficult, but she decided on pre-school because she could do them all! Ms.Mac has worked with kids of all ages.
Choosing pre-school was a no brainer considering how much she loves to watch the exponential growth kids go through in the early days of learning. In her free time she loves to paint and draw. This is Aariana’s first year teaching as a lead teacher.

Ms. Elizabeth Schweitzer
My name is Elizabeth Schweitzer. I started at ICS in 2013. Back then, I was the preschool teacher as we began building the preschool program. After a year of teaching preschool, I moved to teaching Kindergarten and have been loving teaching Kindergarten ever since. My favorite subjects to teach are science and math, probably because those were my favorite in school to learn. In my spare time, I enjoy playing the cello and making dinner for my family.

Ms. Christina Acernese
Christina Acernese is in her eighth year of teaching in Catholic Education. She found her purpose in teaching the young minds of today. Being an avid learner herself, she always likes to think “outside” of the box to make learning engaging and fun for the students. She also has her reading endorsement and one of her passions is teaching young children to read. In the past, she has worked as a professional tutor helping students improve in their reading and math.
Christina comes to us from Galion, Ohio. In Galion, she was the First and Second Grade Teacher, as well as the Third and Fourth Grade Science teacher for five years. In her first year at Galion, she was the Title I Reading Specialist and Ms. Haus was her principal. Christina made many wonderful memories and connections with the parishioners, families, and teachers at St. Joseph Catholic School and they will always hold a special place in her heart. She is looking forward to creating new memories and connections with the families, teachers, and parishioners at Immaculate Conception School.
Christina wants to thank the parents/guardians of the students for this amazing opportunity and responsibility of teaching their children. Most importantly, she wants to thank God for the blessing and guidance to become a teacher.
When Christina is not teaching, she enjoys cooking, reading, singing, playing her flute, and dancing. She is a Buckeye fan and is looking forward to the Fall weather. She loves Fall and describes it as if God took a paintbrush and colored the leaves in crimson red, sunflower yellow, and vibrant orange. Christina also loves her family and friends and appreciates having them in her life and spending time with them. She is blessed with a wonderful family who helped her get her classroom ready this year and her relocation to Dayton. She prays we all have a wonderful school year.

She has been a parish member for over 45 years. She attended Carroll High School and received a BFA from the University of Dayton.
After graduating from college, she spent many years working in management and in retail sales for Elder Beerman Stores but her dream to teach elementary school Art never left her. While two of her children were still attending Immaculate Conception, she approached the principal and suggested that the school needed an Art Teacher. She was thrilled when she agreed and the next year, Mrs. Beall began teaching part-time Art. Throughout the more than 16 years that she has been at ICS, Mrs. Beall has taught Art along with Religion, Social Studies and Physical Education. As a teacher, Art has always been her favorite subject.
Mrs. Beall is married to a retired Dayton Police officer and has three grown children (all in the military) and two dear grandchildren. In her spare time she loves to walk, watch movies and spend time with her family.
