    HELLO! MY NAME IS DANA DIBENEDETTO AND I AM SO EXCITED TO BE YOUR 5TH GRADE TEACHER THIS YEAR! I WILL START BY TELLING YOU A LITTLE BIT ABOUT MYSELF SO THAT YOU CAN GET TO KNOW ME. I GRADUATED GEORGIAN COURT UNIVERSITY WITH AN ELEMENTARY EDUCATION (K-6) CERTIFICATION AND TEACHER OF STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES ENDORSEMENT. THIS WILL BE MY 9TH YEAR TEACHING! I STARTED IN ANOTHER TOWN DOWN BY THE BEACH, BUT NOW I HAVE BEEN IN MONROE FOR A FEW YEARS AND I LOVE IT SO MUCH! I HAVE TAUGHT BOTH 3RD AND 4TH GRADE. I AM EXCITED TO BE TEACHING 5TH GRADE THIS YEAR BECAUSE THERE ARE SO MANY GREAT BOOKS THAT WE WILL GET TO READ AND A BUNCH OF INTERESTING TOPICS TO LEARN ABOUT. I AM ORIGINALLY FROM NEW YORK, BUT I HAVE BEEN LIVING IN NEW JERSEY FOR A FEW YEARS NOW AND I LOVE IT! I HAVE TWO BEAUTIFUL LITTLE BOYS AGES 3 AND 1, AND TWO RESCUE DOGS NAMED MYA AND ZOEY. SOME OF MY FAVORITE HOBBIES INCLUDE EXERCISING, CRAFTING, COOKING, SPENDING TIME WITH MY FAMILY, AND PLANNING FUN LESSONS/ACTIVITIES FOR MY STUDENTS. MY FAVORITE COLOR IS HOT PINK AND MY FAVORITE FOOD IS PIZZA! I DRINK A LOT OF COFFEE.. YOU'LL SEE! :) NOW THAT YOU KNOW SOME IMPORTANT THINGS ABOUT ME, I CANNOT WAIT TO FIND OUT ALL ABOUT YOU! WE ARE GOING TO HAVE AN AMAZING YEAR TOGETHER FULL OF LEARNING AND FUN, AND I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO MEETING ALL OF MY NEW STUDENTS AND THEIR FAMILIES! PLEASE FEEL FREE TO REACH OUT TO ME WITH ANY QUESTIONS OR CONCERNS THAT YOU MAY HAVE.
