• Welcome to Ms. Schwarz's Class
    I am celebrating my 16th year in the Oakland Public School System. I began as a kindergarten teacher at both Dogwood Hill School and Heights Elementary School in 2004. I am excited to begin this journey with the first grade students and parents of Oakland, New Jersey. There will be many wonderful changes in first grade this year! I invite you along for the journey and, as always, please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions, comments, or concerns you may have!
