I grew up in St. Cloud, Florida. I graduated from Florida Atlantic University in 2016. This is my first year living in New York City and teaching for the DOE. I am currently pursuing a Masters of Science in Teaching Urban Children with Disabilities with a Bilingual Extension at Long Island University.

I am currently attending The City College of New York. The reason I am in PS 330Q is because I enjoy working with today’s youth and I love the ability of being able to guide them on to the right path. Elementary school had a great impact on the person that I am today. The one memory that I remember is learning calligraphy from my 3rd grade teacher who till this day I am still in contact with.

Jessica@ps330q.org

I went to Long Island University CW Post. I graduated with my degree in early childhood and childhood education. I decided to come to PS 330 to give the students the tools they need to become whatever they aspire to be in life and to make sure they never give up. Elementary school was a great time for me, and was the reason I wanted to become an elementary school teacher. I specifically remember my first grade teacher. She taught me learning could be fun, and that I was capable of whatever I put my mind to. This is exactly what I want to instill in my students, and hope to bring back the love of learning.

Hello, my name is Jennifer Gielarowski and I am the IEP Teacher at PS 330Q. For my bachelor degree I attended Long Island University, CW Post where I studied Art Therapy. Following my bachelor degree I became a New York City Teaching Fellow and finished my masters in education at Queens College. As a continuing learning, I am currently enrolled in the CITE program with the College of St. Rose in Albany, NY. I started working at PS 330 a couple of years ago where I learned what a wonderful learning environment this was. I wanted to continue to learn different ways to educate students and felt this school would be a good fit. When I was in Elementary school my favorite memory was being able to write in my special writing journal. We decorated it with pictures, and put all of our creative stories in it. I loved to create narratives, and fantasy stories where my imagination could run free. I also love being outdoors with my family. My husband, two daughters, and I love to go camping, enjoy nature, and unplug!

I have been working for the Board of Education for many years..... I love working with kids!

Teaching a child is to teach a life forever! I spend my free time jogging , reading and talking to my friends and family in Colombia. On Sundays, I love to go to church and enjoy a great lunch with my daughter and husband at any local restaurant. It is a pleasure to work for my community at PS 330Q.

Hi! I am Mrs. Martinez and I am Public School proud! Throughout my education I have attended Public Schools. I attended The City University of New York at Brooklyn College. Teaching is my passion and I want to give back to the Queens community, because I grew up in Queens, that is how I ended up at PS 330. Everyone here is passionate about education and the betterment of our community. PS 330 is a community of learners! I never stop learning, and I hope to instill that mantra to all I encounter. My favorite Public School memory comes from our school! Every year we celebrate "Friends-giving", where students and their parents share meals and stories from our different cultures. I learn so much about my students, their families and experiences, while they learn about me! It is a wonderful time to celebrate food, family and friends.
