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 have three children, 2 who are currently attending WHRHS.  I love teaching kindergarten and I look forward to getting to know your children this year!

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."
