Mrs. Joanne Certo
Welcome to 5C! I am so excited to be teaching 5th grade Language Arts at Washington School this year! My husband Matt and I have 3 children and we have lived in Wyckoff for 11 years. Jennie is a Junior at Immaculate Heart Academy, Harrison is an 8th grader at EMS and Gina is a 6th grader at EMS. My children all attended Lincoln School as elementary students. I have always been very active in the schools here in Wyckoff volunteering, running events, being a class mom, and taking on the role of President of Lincoln PTO and President of Eisenhower PTO. Being a Teacher and a Parent are my LOVES!!
I attended West Chester University and have a Bachelor's of Science degree in Elementary Education and continued my education and received a Master's degree in Elementary Education at Montclair State University. I worked at Oradell Public School for over 10 years as a first grade teacher and technology teacher and I was the Director of their summer program. Last year, I worked at Eisenhower Middle School and taught 6th Grade technolgy and began working here at Washington School as a 5th grade teacher.
We are going to have so much fun this year! The children will learn to expand their minds and be thoughtful readers and writers! If you ever have any questions or concerns please email me @firstname.lastname@example.org.
