Mrs. Stage

I am a Jersey girl. I grew up in Piscataway and Branchburg.

I graduated from Somerville High School and Rutgers University.

I have a husband and two sons. Mr. Stage retired in January after working for a large, multi-national corporation for 37 years. He plays golf, reads, and watches whatever sports are available now. My older son, Jesse, works for Amazon. He is engaged to be married in June. He loves helping animals and he likes video games. My younger son, Mitchell, graduated from Delaware Valley University in May 2018 and works full time as an assistant at a golf course in Chicago.

I love reading. This summer, I read Pachinko, Their Eyes Were Watching God, The Glass Castle, and Things Fall Apart. Their Eyes Were Watching God was published in 1937 and Things Fall Apart was published in 1958. Reading them was absolutely amazing!

I love the beach. Any beach. All beaches. Also, pools. Give me some sunshine and water and I'm good.

September 2020 will be the start of my 21st year in Lakehurst and my twenty-seventh in teaching.

I live in Whiting and love the woods and wildlife.

I love to cook. My favorite dishes are tacos (regular, fish, and shredded beef), sloppy joes, and sausage, peppers, and onions. In the winter months, I like to make butternut squash soup and chili. I could feed a small army by myself.

Finally, I love teaching in Lakehurst. I have friends and neighbors who were born and raised here. I have friends who work on the base. I've been here long enough to teach the children of former students. And, I've witnessed first hand how the school and community can come together and show their love for one another.
