Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! My name is Ms. Padron and I am your 5th-grade teacher for Math, Science and Social Studies this school year. Here's a little about me. I have been teaching for 14 years and have taught 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade. My first years in teaching were in Lakewood, NJ. After that, I became a 5th-grade literacy teacher at Elms Elementary. I am thrilled to teach 5th grade for a fifth straight year!
In addition to being a teacher, I am the proud mom of three children; Cal, Luke, and Riley. Luke and Riley are high school students and Cal is off to college at University of Delaware!
I can't wait to spend the school year learning about and growing with you!
