Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! I am Ms. Liscinsky and I am a Second Grade Teacher at Francis A. Desmares Elementary School. This will be my 12th year teaching at Desmares. In 2004 I graduated from The College of New Jersey with a bachelors degree in Elementary Education and Psychology. I taught Third Grade at Desmares for 8 years. Then I taught Math Support to Kindergarten through 4th Grade for 2 years. After that I took a break from teaching for about 5 years to stay home with my two babies. My family moved to Chicago, then Texas, and last year we moved back to NJ. I came back to teaching last year as a Second Grade Teacher and I am so excited to be teaching Second Grade again this year! Once a dolphin, always a dolphin!
I am married and have two children; Benjamin and Isabella. We also have a dog named Reese (after Reese's Peanut Butter Cups) and a cat named Kion (after Simba's son Kion in the show Lion Guard). We love to read together as a family every night. Two of my favorite children's authors are Mo Willems and Patricia Polacco. We also love to play games like Zingo, Sorry, Uno, Connect Four, and Battle Ship. This summer we've spent a lot of time swimming in the pool and at the beach. We also love to go on hikes. Once we spotted a tarantula on our hike in Texas! That's a story I can't wait to share with you when I meet you!
That's a little bit about me. And I can't wait to meet you!
