Hello! My name is Mrs. Rodrigues.
    I have been with the Long Branch Public School Family for 32 years. I am very lucky to be a part of the Long Branch Public School Family where "children matter the most".
    I decided I wanted to become a teacher the minute I entered the Long Branch Public School District as a student in 1975.
    I received my bachelors degree from Kean University, and I am highly qualified to teach Elementary Education, Bilingual Education, and World Language/Spanish.
    Teaching has always been and still is my passion. I love children and I adore teaching Kindergarten.
     I strongly believe that
    " every child can learn once they are inspired to do so" Teachers enthusiasm in the classroom promotes meaningful learning at every age. In my reflection at the end of the day I always ask myself the same question. " Did I make a difference today in my student's lives?                               
    When I am not in the classroom, I enjoy spending time with my lovely family, especially my most precious grandsons. They bring a lot of joy into my life. I also enjoy running/walking on the boardwalk.
