Degrees and Certifications:
Hi my name is Ms. Cortez and I have been teaching for 17 years in Jackson. I grew up in Jackson but settled in Barnegat to raise my two children. I enjoy teaching in my old home town of Jackson. This will be my second year teaching Kindergarten and once again I am looking forward to all the exploring, learning, and fun we will get to have during this school year. I love teaching and can't wait to help all my students become readers and writers. Together we will go on reading and writing adventures!
When I am not teaching I enjoy spending time with my family. I have a son, daughter, son inlaw, and a two year old grandson. I enjoy going to the beach, crabing, crafting, gardening and spending time with my pets. I have two dogs, one cat, a rabbit and fish. During the school year the chidlren will hear many funny stories about my pets and children. I look forward to getting to know each and every child in my class.
