    Extra Help Day is Thursday morning before school. I will send home an invitation on Wednesday afternoon. About Me: Welcome to Third grade! My name is Jennifer Grella, and I will be your child’s teacher this year. I am looking forward to an exhilarating, productive year working with you and your child. I am excited to be starting my 19th year teaching at Manito During my 19 years here at Manito, I started in third grade, then moved to fifth grade for five years, and now have been back teaching third grade for many years now. When I am not enjoying every moment with your child, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. In 2004, I received my Masters of Arts in Teaching from William Paterson University and completed extra credits through College of New Jersey: RTC to continue my education. In my free time, I enjoy reading, watching movies, going to the beach, spending time with my three nieces, Savannah, Addison, and Cameron, and traveling. This summer I had the opportunity to travel to Japan and learn about the culture, as well as the education system. It was the trip of a lifetime! During the school year, I will be keeping in close contact with you regarding your child’s performance. You are the most important person in your child’s life, so it is crucial that we work together to make this year a success. If you ever have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me at 201-337-6106. I am here to help in any way possible. I look forward to spending this year with your child and working with them not only in a group setting, but individually as well and getting to know each one of their unique personalities.
