Welcome to 4th Grade!

Hi! My name is Miss Garlatti, and I am so excited to be your fourth grade teacher! I can’t wait for the school year to begin, because there is so much for us to learn and explore together! My dream for this school year is that I am able to help you love learning and become lifelong learners! I am truly looking forward to hearing about your hopes and dreams for the school year.

Some of you may know me or recognize me from Parkview School. I was lucky enough to teach third grade at Parkview School two years ago, and this is my second year teaching fourth grade at Joyce Kilmer School. I am not a stranger to the school; I actually attended this school when I was a student! I had a great experience at JK and I’m sure you will as well!

Please let me share a little bit about myself. I grew up in Milltown, but I now live in Somerset. I have a mom, dad, and an older brother. My favorite thing to do is play with my dog Hudson. He is a three-year-old goldendoodle. This summer I spent a lot of time down the shore in Point Pleasant Beach. I have been going there my entire life and my favorite thing to do there is play games on the boardwalk. I cannot wait to learn about you in September!

Please remember to complete your summer reading assignment and bring it to school with you on the first day. I hope you enjoyed reading this book and many other books this summer. I can hardly wait for the first day of school and am eager to hear about your summer adventures!
