Dear Families, Students, and Colleagues, 

 

I am thrilled to be returning with the Basking Ridge Staff for my third year here!  I came to the district with a plethora of teaching experience and knowledge which I am looking forward to sharing with my colleagues.  

 

I taught for 15 years in the River Edge School District; most of my experience is in grades 2, 3, and 4.   I earned my undergraduate degree from Lafayette College in Pennsylvania.  I then obtained my Master's Degree in Elementary Education from St. Peter's College, and I also have a Master's Degree in Supervision and Administration from Scranton University.  I have always been passionate about ELA and literacy so this position is my dream job!

 

I live with my husband, five year old son, and Beagle in New Providence.  We LOVE spending time outdoors going for walks to the playground, exercising, and going to the beach in Point Pleasant, NJ.  Strolling the boardwalk, going on the rides, and playing in the arcades is where you can find us!

 

I practice a growth mindset in every aspect of my life and look forward to passing this thought-process along to my students each year. I celebrate attempts and growth in the educational realm much more than immediate success.  Learning and growing with your children will be my goal this educational year.   I know your children are your number one priority, and I pledge to treat each and every one of them as they are my own.  I welcome any questions, concerns, or general conversation at any time of the day! Please email me at jglaydura@bernardsboe.com.  I look forward to a wonderful and successful year!
