Welcome to 4th Grade! I am so excited to begin my third year here at Avon Elementary with all of you in September, and to get to know all my new students & their families!
For now, here's a little bit about me...
I live nearby in Spring Lake Heights, and I grew up in Freehold with my parents and younger brother Kevin, and our pet dogs, cats and fish (we love animals, as you can see!). In 2009 I graduated Rutgers University with a Bachelor's in Psychology, and later I graduated from TCNJ with a Masters in Education.
The 2019-2020 school year will mark the start of my 9th year teaching. I have primarly taught grades 4/5, but also have experience teaching gifted and talented. My student teaching placement was in an ELL classroom, at the American International School of Bilbao, in nothern Spain. I speak fluent Spanish because of my Cuban heritage, and this certainly helped me while abroad!
When I'm not in school, I love traveling, reading, cooking, and spending time with my family, friends, and fiance- Devin.
I'm looking forward to a great year, and can't wait to get to know more about all of you!
