Biography


Mrs. Milano has been teaching Social Studies and ACEs since coming to FAMS in 1991. She holds a B.A. in American History from Montclair State University, an M.A. in Social Science from William Paterson University as well as an M. Ed. in Educational Leadership. In 1995, Mrs. Milano received the Governor's Teacher Recognition Award.

Throughout her many years in the district, Mrs. Milano has continuously strived to incorporate lessons into the social studies curriculum that instill a sense of curiousity about current issues among her students.

In between projects, when she manages to get some "down time", Mrs. Milano enjoys being with her husband and two children, cooking, reading, practicing yoga, and spending time outdoors, preferably at the shore!

Mrs. Milano is one of the 8th grade team leaders and may be contacted at smilano@franklinlakes.k12.nj.us.
Teaching Philosophy

Teachers...

A little of you lives in every child

with whom you come in contact.  Great is your influence, for you have contributed to the development of every advancement in medicine and science.You speak in every courtroom and from every pulpit.Your voice is heard in every song and your influence is felt in every painting.You live in the pages of every book that has ever been written.You ride into space with every astronaut.You live in every home and speak through each child at the dinner table when the child says, "My teacher says..."Walk proudly then, for you are a teacher.
