•  reading owl books

    Hello!! I am Mrs. Wachter. I am the school librarian and media specialist at the George L. Catrambone Elementary School.   
    As a child, I attended Long Branch Public Schools from Kindergarten through High School graduation in 1998.  During these years, I had so many wonderful teachers that my dream of becoming a teacher myself was born.  After graduating from Rutgers University, I became a third grade teacher in West End School.  I taught third grade at West End for 12 years, and continuted teaching 3rd grade ELA at GLC for 4 years. Now I am in my third year as school librarian at GLC.  Throughout my years as a teacher,  I have met many wonderful students and their families. I am eager to get to know all of our students at GLC and to work with them to help them develop a love of reading.
    When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family.  Our favorite place to be is the beautiful beaches in Long Branch and you can find us there in the summer time. I also love reading (of course I do!),  and cooking.  I am currently a student of The University of West Alabama and working towards my masters degree in School  Library and Media Science.
