Welcome 5th Graders!

I'm so excited to start our school year together! This is my fourth year at Maugham School and I'm so excited to be your teacher! Before Maugham School I worked as a special education teacher and taught both 5th and 6th grade in Rutherford! I studied for my BA in Family and Child Studies at Montclair State University and my MAT in Elementary Education and Teacher of Students with Disabilities also at Montclair. I'm excited to be teaching 5th grade this year at Maugham and we're going to make it a great year! If you ever have any questions, the best way to reach me is
