I am very pleased to inform you that I will be co-teaching with Mrs. Sue Mayo this year. What an exciting year this is going to be working with you, your children, and Mrs. Mayo! Mrs. Mayo and I plan on delivering the best education to your child and fellow classmates this year, in a positive and caring classroom setting :)
My family and I have been living in Barnegat for 4 years. Prior to moving to Barnegat, I lived in Florida, which is where my three children were born. Yes, they grew up going to Disney constantly and we will be going back to visit in November-they are very excited!!! I am originally from Northern New Jersey in Essex County. I have been working in the Barnegat School District for approximately 2 years as a substitute teacher. I am certified in General Education (K-8), Special Education (K-8) and have a Masters of Art in Special Education.
I have three children: Dylan, Jake (nine year old twin sons going into Fourth Grade at Joseph T. Donahue), and my daughter, Brooke(seven years old going into Second Grade at Donahue). Prior to having children, I taught middle school in West Orange, NJ, grades 6, 7, and 8th. There I taught Special Education and Inclusion classes. I loved it!!!! I took time off from teaching when I had my children and stood home to raise them.
When I am not working I enjoy spending time with my family, going to the beach, watching movies, going to sporting/dancing events for my children, vacationing, and reading/researching new topics of interest.
It is my goal to maintain the same high expectations and academic rigor that Mrs. Mayo has set forth in prior years.
Please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or at (609) 660-8900, should you have any questions, comments, or concerns. Thank you and again I am so excited to be working with you, your child, and Mrs. Mayo for the 2015-2016 school year.
Mrs. Giovanna De Grazio
