This is my seventh year at Oradell Public School as the ESL teacher. I started my career as an elementary school teacher and have been teaching ESL for over thriteen years. I am married to my husband Craig and have two beautiful daughters Maya and Alayna, a wonderful son Benjamin, and one beautiful boxer dog Addy. I was once an immigrant to the United States, so I can empathize with my students. Learning a new language and culture can be extremely difficult, but rewarding at the same time. Embracing different cultures is an important value in life. We all have our own stories to share. We should take the time to listen to all of them. You can reach me by email at email@example.com or by phone at 201-261-1180 ext. 5037
