My name is Joan McGovern and I am excited to be part of the Pemberton Learning Community. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree from Stockton University, and my Master of Education degree in Reading from Widener University. I hold a New Jersey Elementary Teaching certification, and a New Jersey Reading Specialist certification. Over the past twenty seven years I have taught Pre-School, Kindergarten, Second, and Third grades. My goals for the 2023-2024 school year are enhance students' ability to create questions, to expand students' vocabulary growth, and to utilize new reading assessments to guide instruction.
