My name is Mrs. Renz and I am honored to have the opportunity to care for your child/children this school year as the School Nurse and K through 2nd Grade Health Teacher! I received a Bachelors of Science in Nursing from Fairfield University and a Masters of Science in Nursing from Rutgers University. After practicing as an intensive care and cardiac care nurse for 5 years, I took a position as a Clinical Liaison in the Medical Affairs department at BD, responsible for the safety and efficacy of new products. When my children were young, I returned to school and received a postgraduate Instructional School Nursing Certification from Rutgers University. I have been practicing as a School Nurse for 15 years. I have been employed in both the public and private sector and have truly found a job that I love!
In addition to caring for the children, I look forward to meeting the youngest learners in the classroom for health lessons. Our year will be packed with informatin about how to be "healthy" and care for our bodies. In addition to providing nursing care and teaching, I will conduct health screenings for each student that will include, your child's height, weight, vision and hearing.
In a research article entitled Health and Academic Achievement, the CDC states that "Healthy students are better on all levels of academic achievement: academic performance, education behaviour , and cognitive skills and attitudes." I am committed to fostering healthy children so that they can perform to their best academic ability. Together we will partner to maintain a healthy community at Essex Fells School!
