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 works for a multi-national company. He watches football. All football. Any football. Lots of football. My older son, Jesse, works at an animal shelter. 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.
I love reading. My classroom has lots of books that you are welcome to borrow. I am going to read The Hate U Give before it comes out in theaters.
I love the beach. Any beach. All beaches.
September 2018 will be the start of my 19th year in Lakehurst and my twenty-fifth 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.
Finally, I love teaching in Lakehurst. I have friends and neighbors who were born and raised here. 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.
