Welcome to First Grade!

Welcome to First Grade! This is an exciting year for us all and I am so glad to have you in my class! This is my second year teaching First Grade, many of you may know me as Ms. Abbruzzese, formerly of the Kindergarten team. 

I look forward to a year of positive experiences together in a welcoming classroom to learn and grow.

This is my fourth year of teaching. I have a dual B.A. in Early Childhood Education and Writing Arts from Rowan University, Glassboro, N.J. (Go Profs!)  

I enjoy the beach, family time, exercise, and exploring new places with my husband (recently married in October, 2020). All of my students quickly learn that some of my favorite things are Giraffes and Disney!

I am looking forward to creating great memories with all of you this school year!
