Everyone is Welcome Here
  • Dear Fantastic Families,

                My name is Palak Patel and this is my 2nd year teaching at Maugham Elementary School. I am thrilled that your child is in my class this year! Your child will embark on a learning journey full of excitement, challenges, and many growth opportunities. This year, your child will become a great reader, mathematician, writer, scientist, and sociologist.
               All children are unique and must have a stimulating educational environment where they can grow academically, physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially. It is my desire to create this type of atmosphere where students can meet their full potential. I will provide a safe environment where students are invited to share their ideas, take risks, and have fun while learning! Most importantly, I want my students to feel happy about coming to school every day.

              The best way to contact me is by email. My email address is ppatel@tenafly.k12.nj.us. I will get back to you within 24 hours. You may also contact the school's main office for any time-sensitive issues.

              Thank you for trusting me with your child’s education this year! I look forward to working with you to ensure we have a very successful school year!
