Welcome to Mrs. Sterns page!
     I would like to take the opportunity to introduce myself.  My name is Mrs. Stern and I am honored to be your child's first  grade teacher for the upcoming school year.  I have been teaching in the North Bergen School District for 29 years. I find that each year unveils new and exciting experiences with each class and I am very excited to start a new journey with my class this year.
     I graduated from New Jersey City University with a degree of Elementary Education.  I also hold a Masters of Arts in Reading Specialist.  I am looking forward to working with you and your child in reaching his or her full potential.  As your child's teacher, my main goal is to help every child achieve success in their education and to instill a great passion for learning.  We will have many wonderful.  experiences and opportunities to learn and grow in the days ahead.  I have great expectations for my students.  I believe every student can achieve these expectations with the support of the family and teacher.
    I believe that communication is the key  to a great parent-teacher relationship.  I encourage you to contact me if you have any questions or concerns at any time.  You can send me a note at [email protected] or contact me at the school at   (201)295-2882.  I will also do my part by updating my website weekly.  
     I look forward to an exciting year filled with new challenges and experiences.  I consider it a great privilege to be your child's teacher this year and  look forward  to a both fulfilling and rewarding school year.
