Degrees and Certifications:

Mr. Andrew Chen

Hello MPE!

I am honored to have the opportunity to teach Mrs. Cognetti's 2nd grade class for the remainder of the school year.  This is my first teaching position, so I admittedly am very much still learning the ropes.  But I am determined to learn as much as I can as quickly as I can, while making sure your children feel secure -- and have fun -- while learning.

I was an instructional aide with MPE for nearly two years, after having served as a substitute teacher on many occasions over the two years prior.  In my time at MPE I have worked with every grade level.  In addition, I taught the TREP$ ASE class last spring, and I have been creating the MPE Daily Roars that serve as morning announcements each day.

My family and I live right here in Livingston, and we have two wonderful daughters in-district:  one at LHS, and one at Heritage.  Education-wise, I have a Bachelor’s degree in Aeronautical Engineering from Princeton University, and an MBA from MIT Sloan.  Education is my second career -- my first was in the business world.  Teaching children has always been something I’ve enjoyed immensely, and I’ve devoted this next stage of my life to doing just that.

Thank you for visiting my webpage!  This, like my own teaching expertise, is still a work in progress -- so please be patient as I find the time to update this with more/better information going forward.
