Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Jennifer Ancelo
Welcome 6th graders! I'm Mrs. Ancelo. I'm incredibly excited to meet all of you. As 6th graders, you set the example for our younger students, so a positive attitude and sprinkling kindness here and there will rub off on others.
This year starts my 22nd year teaching. I previously taught in Trenton & Hopewell, grades 6-8, before coming to Chesterfield. I live close by in Cream Ridge, so I don't have to travel far to get to my students. I love teaching and learning too! I graduated from Cabrini College with a degree in Elementary Education in 2001. A few years later, I earned a Master's Degree in Special Education from Rider University and another Master's Degree in Behavioral Psychology.
Aside from teaching, my hobbies include cooking, exercising, being outdoors, and spending quality time with my family. I'm happily married to my husband, Anthony. We have two beautiful children, Ava, my 5 1/2- year- old, and Anthony Joseph, who has just celebrated his 3rd birthday. I also have an 18- year- old step-son, Matthew. I'm sure you'll hear many funny stories about my kids. I'm an animal lover and have an English Cream Golden Retriever named Gus, and a cat, Jasmine.
Let's make this a fantastic year!
