Mrs. Janet Wood

Welcome to Room A19!  I’m Mrs. Wood and I am your child’s preschool teacher for the school year. I graduated from Trenton State College (The College of New Jersey) in 1984 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Early Childhood and Elementary Education.

Two other important members of our learning community are Mrs. Rivera the classroom aide and Mrs. Cook the four hour classroom aide.  Mrs. Rivera offers support to our bi-lingual students throughtout the day while making them feel comfortable with using their home language while in the classroom.

My husband, Phil, and I have been married for 31 years, and raised our family in the Lacey Township area so we could be close to our extended family. We have two children, Philip and Christina. Our son, Philip, is 28 years old and graduated from the University of Miami.  He is currently following his dream of becoming a writer and has relocated to California. Our daughter, Christina, is 25 years old and graduated from Virginia Tech.  After school and on the weekends I enjoy spending time with my family as well as running and biking.   

For the past 34 years I have followed my passion of providing quality early childhood experiences to countless children. I am proud to be entering my 18th year in the Pemberton Township school district.  Your child is receiving the best education with our 5 star high quality early childhood program.  I was honored to be selected as the 2015-2016 Governor's Teacher of the Year for the Pemberton Early Childhood Education Center, as well as the Acme Teacher of the Month for January 2016.  I look forward to working with you to help your child develop both emotional and academic confidence and independence.  

Please call me at 609-893-8141 ext. 1500 or reach me by email at if you have any questions or concerns.

I look forward to a Fabulous 5 Star Year!
