Mrs. Kiernan and Miss Baals

    Welcome to first grade! Miss Baals and I are absolutely thrilled to be your teachers this year.  

    I want to share a few things about myself with you. I am married to my husband, John. We have three amazing children: Jack who is in fourth grade, Ben who is in kindergarten, and Luke who is under a year old. I also have two Labrador retrievers, Chloe and Zoe. In my free time I like to read, craft, and camp near the shore.

    I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education and English from Rowan University. I am passionate about education and guiding student learning. My main goal is to challenge each student and watch them flourish to their full potential.

    In our classroom, we strive to promote a community that is safe, fair, accepting, and fun. We must respect each other and embrace all of our differences that make us unique individuals.

    We will send home weekly newsletters and also update our classroom website to keep you up to date on what is happening in our classroom. As a teacher and a parent, I understand the importance of all of us working together for your child. You can always contact Miss Baals or myself with any questions or concerns you may have via the email addresses listed below.

    We are so excited for this school year and the opportunity to know you and your child better.
