Brief Bio:

My name is Jennifer Tremarco and I have taught fourth grade at Millington School for twelve years. This is my third year teaching second grade and I couldn’t be more excited! I received both my undergraduate and masters degree from Fairleigh Dickinson University. I feel honored to be part of the Long Hill Township School District.

To reach me:

You may email me at jtremarco"@"longhill.org or call me at 647-2312 (ext. 2027). I check my messages daily, and will get back to you as soon as possible.

Expectations:

I want to make your child's educational experience a positive one. Homework, projects, reading, writing and increased responsibilities for all behaviors will be a large part of their second grade year. My hope is to see you get involved, and enjoy watching your child grow emotionally, socially and academically.
