Welcome to Mrs. Festa's Classroom Site!


Welcome and thank you for visiting our classroom site! I would like to introduce myself as Mrs. Festa. I am very delighted to be a part of the Emerson family, and to teach First Grade! This will be my seventh year at Memorial.  Previously, I taught Fourth Grade for five years at Villano. Prior to working in Emerson, I worked in a private school teaching kindergarten for two years. I truly enjoy being in the classroom and getting to know all of the children. It is going to be a great year filled with new and exciting discoveries. 

A bit about me...I graduated from Montclair State University with a BA degree in Communication Studies but I knew my heart was meant to be in teaching. I went back to school at William Paterson University for my Post-Baccalaureate in Elementary Education. I earned my Masters Degree in Teaching there as well. I am certified in Orton Gillingham. Learning never ends I tell ya!

Your children are very important and special to me. Our classroom is known as "The Festa Family!" We work hard from day one focusing on values that can help everyone get to know, understand, and care for one another. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to e-mail me or simply send in a note with your child.  I will respond to your e-mail within 24 hours. 

Phone: 201-599-7580

Thank You, 
Mrs. Festa
