Spring is here so you know what that means... Robins are back, flowers are blooming, skies are bluer, and ...
state testing is around the corner.
The students will be taking the DLM testing beginning April 4th -April 11th.
It is essential that your child gets a good nights sleep, has a healthy breakfast, and comes to school prepared
and on time.
You will notice homework and spelling words will be review in preparation for testing.
The students need to recognize mathematical terms as well as solve the problems. Students should also be prepared for
reading passages and answering questions just as we do in class. Reading and completing the nightly reading log aids
in creating successful readers.
Please check your childs planner and homework each night. Signing the planner indicates you are aware of what
your child is doing in class and should be doing at home.
I know our students will do fine as they do well every day in class.
Thank you for all you do to help your child be the success they are.
Our schedule this year is as follows:
Please provide a healthy snack as we have an early lunch-10:15.
A little about me...
I have been in the Jackson School District since January 2006. I have a degree in Special Education (Teacher of the Handicapped), a degree in Elementary Education, a Master of Education, and the Reading Specialist Certification. I have worked in all levels in Jackson, most recently middle and high school. Of course this year I will be at Goetz full time. In 2003 I was honored to receive the Teacher of the Year Award for the state of New Jersey. This was awarded to me by the Council For Exceptional Children. I strive daily to maintain the integrity and fortitude representative of that esteemed award.
As well as being an educator, I am a wife, mother, and grandmother. As a family, we enjoy traveling the United States, hiking, camping, kayaking, exploring and just having fun. I am an avid reader, a joy I have passed along to my children and grandchildren and hope to pass along to your children. I truly enjoy working with children and plan to help them all reach their full potential. Thank you for your support.
