Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! My name is Katherine Chinery, and I will be your child's teacher this year! I am so excited to work with these amazing students and help them grow as readers, writers, mathematicians, and so much more. I graduated from Rider University with degrees in Elementary Education, English, and Special Education. This year at Elms, I will be the In-Class Support teacher for Shaina Brenner's 2nd-grade classroom, and Colleen Hussa's 3rd-grade classroom. I am looking forward to working with both of the phenomenal educators in these two classrooms. I believe that every child has something important and creative to bring into the classroom, and cannot wait to watch them grow while working with them throughout the year.
