About the Teacher

Mrs. Pardo's Kindergarten

where faith, friends and fun meet!


We make a living by what we get,

we make a life by what we give.

-Sir Winston Churchill


     I graduated from East Stroudsburg University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Early Childhood Education.  I have been trained in Orton-Gillingham as well as the Superkids Reading Program.  I attend various workshops each year for my professional development.  I am also certified in CPR (summer 2017).

     I began my teaching career at Academy of Our Lady in 1996.  I taught 3 years in First Grade as "Miss Dugan".  Then in July 1999 I got married and became Mrs. Pardo and taught 3 years in Kindergarten, before leaving to raise my family.  I returned to AoOL in 2008 and I am thrilled to be back in Kindergarten!!

     My husband and I have two children.  My daughter Eleana is a junior at the Bergen County Academies in Hackensack and my son Ryan is in 8th Grade.  We have a yellow lab, Cooper.
