Mr. Daniel LaGuardia » Welcome!


Welcome to my website! My name is Mr. LaGuardia and this is my eighth year teaching in Marlboro. I taught special education at Robertsville Elementary before transferring to Defino Central during the 2020-2021 school year as a third grade general education teacher. I am excited to be joining the fourth grade team this year!
I began my career as a first grade teacher in Howell Township, but eventually made my way over to Marlboro. In Marlboro, I have taught grades three, four, and five. I have a masters degree in reading specialization from Georgian Court University. Teaching reading is a real passion of mine! I have also completed the NJEXCEL program and earned my principal certification!
Please feel free to contact me at my email, [email protected] if you have any questions or concerns. I do my best to make myself available as much as possible. This website is filled with resources about what we are learning as well as classroom news. Please make sure to check it periodically for important updates and information!
Let's have a great year!!!
