Mrs. Melissa Sandler

I am so excited to be your teacher! This is my first year at Osage Elementary School, but I have been a teacher for 17 years. I recently moved to Somerdale, NJ and live with my boyfriend, my children, and my cat. My daughter is in first grade and my son is in pre-k. Our cat is a 2 year old Maine Coon and her name is Emoji! Before starting my new position in Voorhees Township, I taught in Montgomery Township in Skillman, NJ for 13 years and in Boston Public Schools for 3 years.

It's hard for me to pick a favorite subject in school, because I truly love all of the different aspects of everything I get to teach as an elementary teacher. However, I think writing might be the winner for me because writing is what gives us all our voice. We can communicate so much through writing and I get so excited to help my students share their thoughts.
