 I have been teaching since 1994 at the Howard C. Johnson School.  I taugh 3rd grade for 10 years.  In 2004, I decided to stay home with my 2 children. I didn't teach for a few years, but I became  a student again, and attended  Georgian Court University to learn more about teaching reading. I earned a certificate as a Media Specialist.  In  2009, when my own children were older, I returned to teaching at Howard C. Johnson School.  I taught  Kindergarten my first year back and then became a 4th grade teacher.  I taught 4th grade for 10 years. Last year, I taught  3rd grade in the remote academy.
