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.
After high school, I attended Old Dominion University in Virginia to study elementary education. I have been teaching for 19 years and have taught 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade. My first years of teaching were in Lakewood, NJ. After that, I moved to the Jackson School District as a 5th-grade literacy teacher at Elms Elementary. Moving along, I joined the Switlik team the next year and I am thrilled to teach 5th grade for the tenth straight year.
Outside of school, I am the proud mom of three children; Cal, Luke, and Riley.
I can't wait to spend the school year learning, laughing and growing with you!
