    A Little about Me

    Hello preschoolers and families!

    My name is Miss Gab and I will be your child's educator throughout this school year.

    What an amazing journey we get to embark on together. We have so much

    planned and I cannot wait to be a part of helping your child learn and grow. 

    I am so excited to welcome you to our preschool family at the Betty Maddalena Early Learning Center.

    Please know that I will create a loving and nurturing environment,

    where your child will be motivated to achieve at their fullest potential.

    Being a teacher is my passion in life. My personality truly fits the characteristics

    of a teacher, a few include: loving, smart, caring and organized. In my free time, I also enjoy

    cooking, painting, DIY projects, being outside and making others smile. :)


    This is my 2nd year as a preschool disabilities teacher.

    I love our school and consider it my home away from home. I finished

    my undergraduate studies at Montclair State University, double majoring in both

    Sociology and Early Elementary Education grades Pre-K-6th. 

    I then attended Caldwell University, where I earned my certification in

    Teaching Students with Disabilities as well 

    my Master’s Degree in Special Education.

    "I will let them be little, fill their hearts with laughter,

    help them grow wings, nurture their sense of wonder,

    inspire them to believe, &

    love them like there is no tomorrow."- Unknown
