About Mrs. Gold
Hello! My name is Mrs. Jennifer Gold and I am so happy that you'd like to get to know more about me! There is a lot to learn...I am not only a teacher, but a wife, a mother, a dancer, and a website designer! I've been married since 2006 (my maiden name was Ms. Kunz for those of you who might have known kids in my class many years ago), and I have a son named Ethan who was born in June 2009. I took two years off to be a stay-at-home mom and loved every minute of it, and last year was my first year back! Now that I got the first year back under my belt, I am really excited to start a new year with all of you!

 
 
Teaching Experience

This is my eleventh year in Montgomery Township Schools. I started out teaching basic skills reading and writing for two years, and am now going on my ninth year teaching third grade!

I received my Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education from Clemson University in Clemson, South Carolina. While teaching basic skills, I completed my Masters Degree in Reading from The College of New Jersey. I am also a certified Reading Specialist.

Hobbies

In my spare time, I love to dance. I have taken dance classes and performed in dance groups since I was six years old. I take tap and jazz classes once a week during the school year and (like many of you) perform in a recital every spring! In past summers I have taught dance at Mercer County Community College, but now I spend my summers tutoring and taking summer workshops in order to further my teaching skills. I also enjoy going to the pool, reading, shopping, taking Yoga classes, cooking, and of course spending time with my family! I love to stay busy!

Another thing I enjoy doing is designing websites, such as this one! I worked hard to achieve my Web Designer Certificate, and design websites for people (mostly teachers) all over the world including Australia!

Expectations
 
A few adjectives that describe me are friendly, excited, organized, fun, eager to learn, and motivating! I expect the same from the children, and want students who are going to have positive attitudes towards school, will be responsible in doing their homework or projects, and will be organized with their papers and belongings, and will give me 100% effort.
