• 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 also graduated from Rutgers University. My youngest is in his junior 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 have earned a computer certification from Rowan University. I also earned my Master's Degree from Rider University. My Master's Degree 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 have taught first grade at Kresson School for 28 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 recently spent 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 the children learn in third grade. It was also enjoyable to see how much third graders can do.
        I am excited to be back in first grade again this year, 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.
