Background Information
I have obtained a BA degree in Elementary Education and one in Psychology from Monmouth University, as well as a MA degree in Education with a specialization in Teaching Students with a Disability from The College of St. Elizabeth. I absolutely love teaching and look forward to seeing your child every day! It is my passion and goal to have my classroom environment reflective of this love. This being my ninth year as an educator at TJ, I could not be more excited. I have previously taught fifth grade for two years before joining Rockaway Boro's team of educators, and am thrilled to have the opportunity to teach fourth grade again this year.
Mission For The Class
My mission for the class is not only to prepare my fourth graders for fifth grade, but also to guide each child to become an independent and responsible learner. I believe that each child is a unique individual and I pledge to give him/her a secure, caring, and stimulating atmosphere in which he/she can grow and mature emotionally, intellectually, physically, and socially.  It is my desire as an educator to help my students meet their fullest potential in these areas by providing an environment that is safe, supports risk-taking, and invites a sharing of ideas. The only way to reach this goal is for the school, the teacher, the students, and the parents to work together. My door is always open, and I encourage you to use my e-mail to quickly and efficiently get in touch with me. I welcome your suggestions and participation in making this year the best that it can be!
