A Little About Me

Mr. Perry and I live in Howell with our two fur babies, Muffin and Molly. Muffin and Molly are both rescues. Muffin is a 9 year old Chihuahua mix and Molly is a 5 year old Maltese. Mr. Perry retired in December 2020 after working for the same company for 26 years! As of November 16, 2021, Mr. Perry and I have been married for 25 years !!!

Before I became a school counselor, I was a Teacher of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing. I earned my Bachelors degree from Kean College in 1990. I worked in Bergen County, prior to getting married in 1996. While living in Freehold, I worked in Neptune at the middle school, teaching grades 6, 7 and 8. I earned my Masters Degree from Georgian Court College in 2001, in Pupil Personnel Services. I have school counseling experience in both middle and elementary school. The 2021- 2022 school year will be my 31st year as an educator!

Mr. Perry and I are very close to our parents and we try to see them as much as possible. Mr. Perry and I enjoy going to Cape May, Wildwood and Rehoboth Beach, DE whenever we can. We also enjoy our pool and spending as much time outside as we can with the doggies!

This is Muffin. Muffin is a 9 year old Chihuahua Mix. Muffin is a rescue. She needed extensive medical attention when we adopted her, but she is fine now. Muffin loves sun bathing, chasing bugs that fly and barking at every squirrel in Howell Township.

This is Molly. Molly is a 5 year old Maltese. Molly is a rescue. Molly loves snuggling, playing outside and trying to trick us into giving her extra treats. Molly was a great co-worker while I was working remotely from home.

Good Luck Mr. C.

We are so sad to see Mr. C. go, but so proud that he will be working at Princeton Middle School! We wish Mr. C. the best of luck and hope he will come back and visit us! We miss you Mr. C. !!!
