Mrs. Laura LoPiccolo
Resource Room Teacher
5th - 8th Grade
This is my 17th year of teaching at Union Twp School. I received my bachelor's degree from Saint Joseph's University in both Elementary and Special Education. In 2007, I earned a master's degree in Education and Instruction. In 2015, I received Teacher of the Year at UTMS. I am highly qualified in Math, Language Arts and Social Studies. I taught 4th grade resource room for 4 years and moved to the middle school to teach 5th grade resource room for 2 years. For 9 years following that, I had the pleasure of teaching 5th and 6th grade general education Math. This school year is my 2nd year returning to the resource room to teach 5th & 6th grade OCR Math and 8th grade OCR Social Studies. I will also be joining Mrs. Pryor and Mr. Golden as their in-class support teacher for 7th grade.
I enjoy spending time with my amazing family; my husband, John, our eleven year old daughter, Adriana, and our son, CJ, who is seven years old. I feel very lucky to have two amazing kids, who keep me smiling and always make me laugh. We also have four rescue dogs, Casey, Brownie, Romeo and Pepper. All 4 are very sweet, love to snuggle and sit on your lap. Brownie and Pepper are both 3 legged rescues and hold a special place in my heart because of their rescue stories.
I enjoy listening to my daughter sing, play the flute, and dance. My son and I play football and baseball on a daily basis and like to swim in the summer. Cape May is our favorite place to visit every summer as we all love the beach and like walking around the town of Cape May. As a family, we love cheering for the NY Giants and NY Yankees.
