Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Pam Minch

"Who is Mrs. Minch?"  Well...let me tell you a little bit about myself.  I was raised in Wayne, NJ.  In 1995, I graduated from Montclair State University with a degree in Early Childhood Education.  Later, I went on to receive my Master's in Teaching.  Right after graduation, I became a 1st grade teacher in West Orange.  In 1998, I married my husband Frank.  In 2003, our first child was born and I resigned after eight years of teaching.  For eleven years, I enjoyed being a stay at home mother.  In 2014, I began teaching again as a Kindergarten teacher at Francis A. Desmares.

In 2007, my family moved to Flemington from Basking Ridge.  My two children previously attended Francis A. Desmares.  Our son, Kevin, is currently a sophomore at Seton Hall University and our daughter, Erin, is a senior at Hunterdon Central High School. We also have two adorable guinea pigs, Luna and Lily.
I love the color yellow and anything with sunflowers.  (My classroom is decorated with lots of sunflowers.)  My hobbies are crocheting, reading, shopping, and doing jigsaw puzzles.  I like 80's music and country music.  I used to be a very good country line dancer!  (In fact, that's how I met Mr. Minch!)  I love the smell of vanilla!  Tea and iced coffee are my drinks of choice and I have a huge weakness for chocolate and sugar cookies.  My favorite restaurants are 55 Main, Panera, and Chimney Rock. Spending time with my family and friends is what I enjoy the most.
