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.






I was born and raised most of my life in Corona Queens. I went to Medgar Evers College where I majored in Psychology. I continued my studies in St. John's University where I graduated with a Masters in Education/ TESOL. This is my fourth year teaching for the DOE. I love to teach and watch how children learn and grow academically. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends- watching movies, shows, concerts,dining and traveling. I also enjoy exercising and spending time with my two dogs.


First Grade


I grew up in Whitestone, NY. I graduated from St. John's University with a BS in Elementary Ed. and an MS in Literacy. This is my second year working for the NYCDOE. I love interacting with my students and making learning fun and exciting for them. I love helping them succeed by building their confidence. I enjoy getting to know all of my students and their families. My family is very important to me and I like to spend time with them, especially my 5 month old niece! In my free time, I love to shop, practice yoga (when I get the chance), and cook.

First grade


I grew up in Warren, Pennsylvania. I went to Warren High School and I received my bachelor's degree at St. Francis College, Loretto, PA where I studied marketing and business management. Then, I got my masters from C.W. Post, Long Island University in education. I have worked for the NYCDOE for 12 years. The one thing that I love the most about my job is watching my students grow and progress throughout the year....and of course seeing their smiling faces every morning. I love to play tennis and golf. I also spend a lot of time with my dog, Monk.




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.

IEP teacher


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!
