"Tell me and I will forget.  Teach me and I remember.  Involve me and I learn."  Benjamin Franklin

 
ABOUT ME:
 
I grew up in Millington and graduated from Watchung Hills Regional High School.  I received my Bachelor of Science Degree in Communications from Boston University and later my teacher's certification from Saint Elizabeth College.  I taught full day kindergarten in Green Brook and first grade when I came to Gillette. I am thrilled to once again be teaching full day kindergarten.  I have three children so in my spare time, you can find me at soccer, basketball and football games!  I look forward to getting to know your children and to a wonderful and exciting year!
 
Contact Information:
 
The best way to reach me is via email at dbauer@longhill.org.  You may also send me a note in your child's folder or leave a voice message at ext. 1013.  Please be sure to call the main office with any urgent messages that may arise.

Homework:
 
The purpose of homework is to reinforce a skill that has been taught in the classroom, as well as teach students responsibility.  Homework is assigned Monday - Thursday and is due back the next day.  On a typical night your child will be assigned one math and one language arts worksheet.  Please have your child practice writing their names and the correct formation of letters and numbers.  I encourage you to also read to your child as much as possible!

"I facilitate thinking, I engage minds.  I listen to questions.  I encourage risk.  I support struggle.  I cultivate dreams.  I LEARN EVERY DAY I TEACH."
