    Hi, my name is Irene Fiory. I have had the pleasure of teaching Kindergarten here at Redwood School since 2002. Prior to coming to West Orange, I taught for 14 years in Livingston (Kindergarten, first, second and third grade) I have my BA plus Masters Degree in Elementary Education.


    I have two beautiful grown children, Jacci and Kevin. When not busy with school activities, I keep busy with my decorating and crafting. I also enjoy cooking and shopping. :)


     Kindergarten is a year of important transitions. Parents as well as children may have some apprehensions about what to expect. It is extremely important to keep in mind that we all build on small successes.


    Each child will progress at his or her own individual rate, acquiring skills as he/she is developmentally ready. Applaud every new accomplishment, no matter how small it may seem. This will keep the enthusiasm for learning alive and growing.


    Maintaining each child's sense of self-esteem, fostering trust, responsibility and building a secure foundation for future growth will always remain a priority in my class.


    I welcome all parents to get involved. A strong parent/teacher relationship is crucial. Let's work together to create a year  your child will shine and reach their full potential. My door is always open. Please do not hestiatate to contact me with any concerns or questions.

    I am so excited to begin this journey of learning and fun with you and your child. Together, let's make this year AMAZING!
