To start off, I would like to tell you about myself both personally and professionally. After graduating Fairfield University in Connecticut, I started my teaching career as a paraprofessional in a 1st grade classroom. I then transitioned and taught for three years in grades 3 and 4 at charter schools in Newark, New Jersey. I love going to the beach and spending time with friends and family. I am training to run a half marathon which is the end of April and will definitely be turning to the class for some motivation! [Symbol] The end of kindergarten is such a special time in the school year and I am looking forward to helping your child transition to being a first grade student. I have many fun ideas and activities planned to finish off the school year!
