Welcome to Grade 5. I am so excited to be teaching grade 5 Homeroom and Grade 6 Math and Reading this year. I would like to take this opportunity to share some information about myself. I am from Boston, Massachusetts and moved to New Jersey in 2001. I have a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education with a minor in math from Salem State College, Salem, Massachusetts. I taught at Saint Catherine of Bologna School in Ringwood, NJ for sixteen years, until they closed in July 2018. I am a firm believer in Catholic education, having attended Catholic schools myself for 12 years. I am very excited and grateful for the opportunity to be a part of Academy of Our Lady.
