•  reading owl books

    Hello!! I am Mrs. Wachter. I am the School Librarian/Media Specialist George L. Catrambone Elementary School.   
    As a child, I attended Long Branch Public Schools from Kindergarten through High School graduating in 1998.  During those 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 at West End School.  I taught third grade at West End for 12 years and continued teaching 3rd grade ELA at GLC for 4 years. Now I am in my fifth year as an SLMS 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 summertime. I also love reading (of course I do!) and cooking.  I am currently a student at The University of West Alabama and working towards my master's degree in School  Library and Media Science.
    Looking forward to a great year!
