Mrs. DiVirgilio's & Miss Havens' First Grade 2018-19
My name is Mrs. DiVirgilio. This is my 13th year teaching first grade here at Frank Defino Central. I received a B.A in Education & Psychology and completed my Masters of Science in Special Education from Monmouth University. I have two young boys, Jake (7) and Luke (6). They are active and fun loving kids! This year I will not only be a first grade teacher but a parent of a kindergartner and second grader too!
My name is Miss Havens. This is my third year teaching at Frank Defino Central. So far I have taught fifth grade and second grade, and I am so excited to start a new adventure in first! I attended The College of New Jersey and graduated with a B.A. in Psychology and a Master's Degree in Special Education. I am dual-certified in elementary education and special education. When I'm not at school, I love reading, going to the beach, and playing with my dog, Cooper!
First grade is such a dynamic year, filled with growth and development not only academically but socially as well. As your child's teachers, we will do our absolute best to challenge your child while still providing the individual instruction and encouragement that they will need to be successful this school year. We truly love what we do and we know that with your support this school year will be FABULOUS!!
