William Paterson University of New Jersey – Dual Bachelor of Arts: Early Childhood Education and Psychology
P-3 Early Childhood Education
English as a Second Language (ESL)
Hello! Welcome to 1st grade. My name is Vanessa Saroli. I have a B.A. in Early Childhood Education and a B.A. in Psychology from William Paterson University of New Jersey. I am currently a student as well, studying to obtain my masters in literacy-reading education. I have been teaching in Jefferson School for seven years. I taught kindergarten for one year and have been teaching first grade for seven years. I believe education is a two-way communication between home and school. Please feel free to contact me through email with any questions or concerns. I know together we can make this school year a very successful one!
I’m available to meet with parents/guardians virtually to discuss student progress. Please call our Parent Liaison (Nancy Francisco) at: 201-348-5960, ext. 3111 to schedule an appointment.

Tests: Every Friday I give the class their spelling, writing and reading tests. Math tests will be announced a week before the test is given with the exact date.
School Folders (in-person learning only): Every day your child will bring home a homework folder with all of their homework and important information. Please take a few minutes to review the papers and comments, sign and date all tests, and return it to school with your child the next day. You can also write me a note with any concerns/questions and place them inside their folder or through email at email@example.com
