I am proud to say I am a life long resident of Woodbridge Township as well as
a former student of John. F. Kennedy Memorial High School. As I look back on the
four years I spent at John. F. Kennedy Memorial High School, I am reminded of
how hard it was to be a high school student. In fact, I would partially
attribute my passion for teaching and counseling to an underlying desire to ease
the “growing pains” in just one student’s high school experience.
I began my teaching experience in Woodbridge Township at Avenel Middle
School, where I was fortunate enough to perform my student teaching, as well
as work as a substitute teacher for two years. There, I had the
opportunity to learn from some of the greatest teachers I know. Upon
graduating from Kean University, I was lucky enough to return to my alma mater
and once again call John. F. Kennedy Memorial High School “home”.
I hope that I can help to make each of my students' experience at John. F.
Kennedy Memorial High School one that can be reflected back on with
reminiscent enchantment and that they walk away with a great
understanding of literature and life.
