It is both an honor and pleasure to be able to work with your children this year, and together, we are embarking on a project of transformation in our Library Media Center! You are cordially invited to tour our new flexible seating centers, which will be used for collaborative work and creative endeavors, during class time and indoor recess.
My background in teaching began as a visiting author for Dial Books for Young Readers, a division of the Penguin Group. "Halmoni's Day", my first children's picture book, launched a new career path as I presented writing workshops and promoted literacy initiatives in schools, libraries and bookstores throughout the Tri-state area. Working with inquisitive and energetic elementary and middle school students gave me the "teaching bug" and inspiration to become a teacher/library media specialist full-time, and I am thrilled to join the Union Township School District!
On a personal level, my husband, Joe, and I met as undergraduates at Syracuse University and moved to Hunterdon County over 25 years ago, to raise our three children - Joseph, Luke and Jennifer - who are now "college and beyond"! We love the peace and tranquility the area brings, and feel fortunate to call Hunterdon County our home!
