About the Teacher
Hi! I am Ms.Montesano and I am very excited to be teaching at OLC. I received my Bachelor's Degree in Family and Child Studies- Early Childhood Education P- 3 at Montclair State University. Prior to OLC, I have taught grades pre-k through first grade for six years. I create my classroom to be a warm, fun, environment for children to love learning! When I am not teaching, I enjoy traveling, working out, and spending time with my dog. I look forward to helping your children grow and learn to their highest potential!
Hi my name is Kumarie Shivkumar. I have a degree in Early Childhood Education. This is my tenth year at OLC School as an instructional aide. Prior to coming to OLC School, I taught pre-school with the Abbott program of Jersey City Board of Education. While working with the Abbott program, I was fortunate enough to continue my education at New Jersey City University. I taught kindergarten in Guyana, South America for fourteen years, prior to migrating to the United States of America. On a more personal note, I am married and have five children, and four grandchildren. My goal is to inspire children to love learning.
