    Hello Everyone! 

    My name is Michelle Parkhurst and I am so excited to be teaching first grade this year! 

    This is my second year teaching first grade. I gradutated from The College of New Jersey with a degree in Elementary Education. As a teacher, I believe I am most effective when I ignite my student’s curiosity and critical thinking skills to help them become lifelong, independent learners.



    I grew up and still live in Hunterdon county with my two dogs Molly and Kacey. They love to sleep, play outside, and like me, eat lots of treats.
