Welcome to my class! I am so excited to have you back with me this year! We are going to learn SO many new and exciting things together! This is my 11th year of teaching elementary school and my third year in Livingston and at Collins!
I love teaching all subjects, but teaching math is my favorite! I also love to use technology in my classroom.
I think it is so important to work together as a classroom community. We will be spending lots of time together so it is important that we work together and treat each other with kindness and respect. I know that each of you is different and have different interests, strengths, and brains! It’s my job as a teacher to help you grow as a student and as a person.
Want to know a little about me? When I’m not teaching or lesson planning, you can find me running, reading on the beach, or at a New Jersey Devils game! I just got married last summer! (My name used to be Miss Hallock & my first year, I taught with Ms. Selnick!) I am expecting a baby boy this January!
A few of my favorites:
color - pink
season - summer
food - Playa Bowls
drink - Chai tea or seltzer
music - country
author - Jodi Picoult
sport - hockey

- Each Friday, a reading log will be handed out. It must be completed and returned (signed by both parent and student) on the following Friday.
- Most nights, a math worksheet will come home for completion.
- Reading 20 minutes per night is expected.
- Occasionally, work not finished in class will come home for completion.
Please check student planners for the most up-to-date homework assignments. Please sign student planners each night!
Please let me know if it is routinely taking your child more than 30-45 minutes to complete homework and we will work together to find a solution! Homework should be a reinforcement of concepts learned and a review of the lesson. Please let me know if there is something your child struggles with so that we can re-teach and review it in class.
