• Teacher Biography
         My name is Tracey Rossi. I am married and have three children. My daughter is my oldest. I also have two sons. I really enjoy having a daughter and two sons. They are lots of fun. My daughter has graduated from Rutgers, and is substitute teaching at Kresson while she gets her graduate degree. My oldest son just graduated from Rutgers University last spring. My youngest is in his sophomore year at Rutgers. Yes, my husband and I are both Rutgers graduates. We really did let the kids choose where they wanted to go to college believe it or not:)
          I earned my Bachelors Degree from Rutgers University in 1990. Since then, I earned a computer certification from Rowan University. I also earned my Master's Degree from Rider University. My masters is in Reading/Language Arts. I am a certified Teacher of Reading and Reading Specialist. I am also a Google Certified Educator.
         I started teaching in 1990. I taught third grade at E.T. Hamilton School my first year. Then I spent the following year in a special education classroom. I taught first grade at Kresson School for 27 years. I really enjoy first grade because the children show so much growth from September to June. I enjoy getting them excited about different authors that we study each month and encouraging their love of reading.  
         I have just spent the last three years teaching third grade at Kresson. Third grade was an adventure. It was so neat to see how much the children had grown since first grade. I love the math skills that the children learned. It was also enjoyable to see how much third graders can do.
        I am excited to be back in first grade where I can help encourage a love of reading with some of my favorite children's authors. Hopefully, the children will learn some fun author facts too.
