Hello, my name is Mayelin Romero; I am a 1st-grade teacher at Thomas Jefferson School. I have worked for the Union City district for 14 years, teaching Kindergarten before teaching 1st grade. I know 1st grade is a huge transition, but I love it. Like every year, I trust that we can work together to have a successful year, I have always been passionate, and I especially enjoy teaching the kids at Jefferson - Go Jaguars!
I was born and raised in Havana, Cuba, in the Guines Valley. In 2008 I moved to the United States with my family.
I graduated "From Ruben Martinez Villena" University in 2000 with a bachelor's degree in Computer Science Education. Later I attended NJCU and earned my Pre School, ESL, Bilingual Teacher Certification, and Master of Arts - Urban Education. I look forward to many more years of teaching the brilliant students at Jefferson School.
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. 78101 to schedule an appointment.
