Welcome families to the 2019-20 School Year!
In November of 1992, I started working for the Pemberton Township Board of Education. I worked for the School Age Child Care Program. As my daughters grew I started going to Burlington County College and received my Associate of Science Degree. I also worked additional jobs within the school district. I worked as an Office Aide and then a Kindergarten Aide eventually finding my niche as Kathy Forman’s secretary when she was the Supervisor of Early Childhood. Kathy Forman was one of the key stakeholders in the growing Early Childhood Program for Pemberton and I learned so much from her. At the foundation of our wonderful Preschool Program there were, longitudinal studies about the success of children exposed to preschool, building a state of the art building and data, tons of data. I then acquired my dream job, Community Parent Involvement Specialist.
This job suits me well as I am a lifelong resident of Pemberton Township. My father was a Korean War Veteran serving in the Army's 73RD. TANK BN. My family as well as my husband's family is deeply rooted in our community. Together my husband and I have raised two successful daughters who attended Pemberton Township Schools for primary and secondary grades. Their college experiences were acquired from Stockton University, Thomas Edison State University, James Madison University, Providence College and George Washington University.
I am looking forward to another great year of serving our wonderful families. Please accept my invitation to you and your family to stop by my office which is in the Parent Training Room. We have exciting things planned for you and your family this year and I would love to tell you about it. If you would like to be a Parent Volunteer, I will sign you up. We can always use volunteers to help enrich our children’s learning experiences.
