My name is Kristin Schwartz and I am very excited to be teaching First Grade at Catherine E. Doyle this year. I was born and raised right here in Wood-Ridge. I attended Catherine E. Doyle School and graduated from Wood-Ridge High School. I then went to William Paterson University where I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Psychology with a Concentration in Elementary Education. In June of 2019, I received my Master's Degree in Literacy from the American College of Education. Early in my career I taught both First and Second Grade at an Elementary School in Hawthorne. The last five years I have worked as a Pre-K 3 teacher, spending two years in a private preschool and the last three years here at Doyle. Teaching early elementary school is truly where my heart is and I'm so happy to be in Wood-Ridge doing what I love!
