Welcome to preschool in room 23! This is my 9th year at Fort Dix Elementary School working with Mrs. Noone, and my 15th year in the Pemberton School District. I have a BA from Rutgers University and a MS in Child Development and Early Childhood Education from Wheelock College in Boston. My certifications are in Early Childhood Education, Elementary, Special Education, and Supervision. I have enjoyed this field for over 30 years and I am a strong advocate for early childhood education. My experience includes director and regional director in early childhood programs; adjunct teaching at the college level and Program Development Specialist at the NJ DOE, but my heart and true passion is with young children in the classroom!
On a personal level I have two adult children –my daughter is a teacher and my son is a musician. I am also a "grammie" to a beautiful little granddaughter!
This year my goal is for your child to enjoy coming to school each day and to set a foundation of learning that will last a lifetime. I am honored to have the privlidge to work with your children! I look forward to an exciting year getting to know your child and encouraging them to learn and grow in all aspects of our High Scope curriculum. Please feel free to contact me for any questions and/or if you would like to participate in classroom activities. If you have a special activity you enjoy with your child please feel free to share.
