HI! My name is Kelli Napolitano and I am extremely excited to be your child's teacher this year. I have been a teacher since 1998. I graduated from Kean University with a Bachelor degree in Mathematical Science and Elementary Education. I started my career in Sayreville as a Basic Skills math teacher for grades 1 thru 5. Then I taught Kindergarten for the three years that followed. I left the teaching field for awhile and came to Long Branch in 2004 as a middle school reading teacher. I then worked as a first grade teacher in the AAA school. I taught the 3rd grade for 9 years at the Audrey Clark School and the GLC. Two years ago was my first year in 4th grade and at the Gregory School. I taught Writing, Science, and Social Studies. Two years ago I taught 3rd grade reading and was lucky to be the students 4th grade reading teacher through the pandemic. I am excited to be teaching reading again to most of those students again as their 5th grade reading teacher for the upcoming 2021-2022 school year!!! I am looking forward to a GREAT year!
