Hello, my name is Mrs. Macor ~
I am extremely proud to say this is my 25th year teaching at Greenwich Nursery School! I will be Group Teacher in the 4's M-F Program, and am happy to be a part of the new and exciting Monday-Thursday Afternoon Enrichment Program! In previous years at GNS, I have worked as an Assistant and Float in all programs, as well as Group Teacher for the Enrichment Class. What a rewarding and fun experience it has all been! I have my Child Development Associate Credential (CDA). My husband and I live in Williams Township, PA. We have three sons and they are all alumni of GNS! We are also the proud grandparents to our granddaughter who turned 2 in June. Our only pet is a rescue cat named Chance. When I am not at school, I enjoy things as relaxing with my family (when they visit), reading a great mystery, and getting together with friends. Of course I can’t forget shopping! Especially now that I have a granddaughter to shop for! I am looking forward to yet another amazing year with your children as they take this preschool journey!
Hello! My name is Mrs. Mariani~
I love being a part of the GNS family. Teaching is my passion. I taught first grade for 11 years before my first daughter was born. Marlana (Laney) is now 4 and will be attending GNS for her second year. She LOVED it! Somehow it is possible that my baby girl is also eligible to join us this spring! Her name is Brookelynn, but we usually call her Cookie. (It's how Laney pronounced Brookelynn when she found out she was having a sister.) . School should be fun and exciting. What better way to do this than by working with children during their very first taste of school? I feel honored to be part of such an important milestone. I will expose students to things such as letters, numbers, colors, etc. However, my biggest goal is to show them right from the start that SCHOOL and LEARNING are FUN! I strive to create a nurturing, happy, exciting atmosphere. I believe that, at this age, what children need most is practice being away from home, positive interactions with adults outside of their family, plenty of chances to grow and develop social skills, opportunities to deal with big feelings, and a chance to follow their curiosity. I provide stimulation through dramatic play, stories, sensory activities, and crafts. Everything we do in our room has a purpose. There is actually a lot of brain development going on amongst all the fun! Even finger plays hit many aspects of executive functioning, for example. I call myself a child development nerd. I love learning about how children grow and develop because I want to bring out all those many ways to facilitate learning and growing that is engaging and effective. I want these children to be excited to come and learn and grow with us each day. I'm so thrilled to get to meet each of you and travel along that journey with you.
Hello, my name is Mrs. Mrotek~
I am excited to start my third year at Greenwich Nursery School as an assistant teacher in the 4's program. I am also looking forward to working with Mrs. Rieger again, and with Mrs. Macor for a couple of the enrichment days. After graduating from Montclair State University with a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration and moving to Hunterdon County, I met my husband and moved to Stewartsville where we have lived now for 17 years. Since then, I have done project management, the billing department, various involvement at church, substitute teacher, and Girl Scout leader. I really love being a parent and a part of this community. Both of my girls attended GNS and are now in high school! I will always remember that warm and fuzzy feeling the first day I visited GNS, and I still get that feeling as I enter the building today. Nowadays, my family and I are active with dance and softball, but when we find extra time we love to bake, visit amusement parks and walk. I look forward to meeting your child and watching them grow, learn and have fun and am grateful that I will be a part of their preschool experience!
Hello, my name is Mrs. Rieger ~
I am so HAPPY to be continuing in the 4's MWF Program as a Group Teacher and SUPER excited to also be a part of the STEAM Enrichment Program. This year will be my 11th year teaching here at GNS! My educational background didn't start with teaching. I graduated from Montclair State College with a BA in Business and a minor in Psychology. I then had a career in the business world for almost 20 years before I got married and started a family. I am a proud parent of two teenage boys ages 18 (a Freshman at The University of Scranton) and 16 (a Junior at PHS). Both of my children attended the 3's and 4's programs here at Greenwich Nursery School. The amazing experience that we had with the caring teachers and the administration is what prompted me to go back to school and earn my Early Childhood Education Teaching Certificate. My promise to you is a quote from Valerie Welk - “I promise that everyday your child will learn something. Some days they will bring it home in their hands. Some days they will bring it home in their heads, and some days they will bring it home in their hearts.” Thank you for entrusting me with the gift of being one of your child's first teachers. I look forward to celebrating the 50th year at Greenwich Nursery School- it is truly a special place!
Hello, my name is Mrs. Tino -
This is my second year as the 3s teacher at Greenwich Nursery School. I am so happy to be part of this wonderful school and work alongside Mrs. Hillier. My husband and I live Union Township with our two children. Teaching is a great love of mine and I am thrilled to be coming back to the classroom. I hold a standard elementary education teaching certificate and have worked in various educational settings. My experiences working with preschoolers with disabilities have strengthened my ability to differentiate learning so that each child can reach their full potential. I strive to create a safe nurturing environment for your children. In my spare time I can be found digging in my garden and trying to wrangle my Rottweiler puppy. I am excited to work with your kids and feel privileged to do so.
