About the Teacher

Hello! I am excited to be a part of the third grade team and for the opportunity to partner with Ms. Zadroga and Mrs. Kaye in what is sure to be a great school year. I am a graduate from Saint Peter’s University with a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and Psychology. The 2018-2019 school year is my fourth year as part of the OLC family.  I spent my first two years here, while still in college, working part-time in aftercare and as an aide. I also completed course work observations at OLC as well as my student teaching in first grade. Last year, I co-taught with two wonderful third grade teachers, learning the third grade curriculum step by step. On several occasions, I was able to substitute for both third grade teachers as well as other teachers around the building. All of these opportunities allowed me to gain experience working with students of all grade levels from Pre-K to 5th grade.  This year, my grade level partners and I will be working collaboratively which will allow the students to share their learning experiences within and across both classrooms.


I am excited about the year ahead and the opportunity to partner with you in your child's growth. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions. My email is:
