Welcome to Class 5H! I am looking forward to challenging and supporting your child as they complete their last year in elementary school and transition into middle school and beyond.  This year will be filled with a lot of exciting opportunities with an emphasis on your child learning to take positive initiative, work independently as well as successfully collaborate with their peers. 

A very exciting change is happening for our 5th grade students during this school year. The Tenafly Public Schools will departmentalize instruction in mathematics, science, and social studies. This year, I will specialize as a science teacher for all 5th grade scientists and engineers at Smith School. For Class 5H (my homeroom students), I will also teach them reading and writing as well.

I am a firm believer in the importance of a strong home/school connection and look forward to working with you throughout this school year.  

If you are looking for information about Class 5H, please read my welcome letter and Class 5H's supply list for this year.

If you need to make a change to your child's dismissal routine, please also include our amazing secretary, Mrs. Amoroso, and fabulous nurse, Nurse Rose, on the e-mail ( and
