Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Dugan

I am a Jersey girl! After attending Mendham High School I went to Loyola University, in Maryland to study Elementary Education. I graduated with my Bachelor's Degree and moved back to New Jersey in the summer of 2012. I am currently working on my Master's Degree at Montclair University. I have worked for the past eleven years teaching Kindergarten. This marks my fifth year at Hillside! My love for early childhood education shines brightly each day I am in the classroom! When I am not at school, my husband (Danny) and I love to travel. We have a 3 year old dog who is the love of our life! Winnie the Westie! is energetic and full of personality. She keeps us smiling and I am always excited to share fun photos of her weekend with the class. I am an avid beach goer and try to read as many books as possible. If I am not teaching, I am usually cooking something for my family. I love opportunities for crafts and feel that the Kindergarten year is full of exciting growth and development! I am thrilled to get to know your family.
