Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Pam Minch

"Who is Mrs. Minch?"  Well...let me tell you a little bit about myself. I was raised in West Orange and 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 mom. 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 junior at Seton Hall University and our daughter, Erin, is a freshman at Raritan Valley Community College. We also have a cat named Dexter and a guinea pig named Lily.
I love the color yellow and anything with sunflowers. (My classroom is decorated with lots of sunflowers.) Some of my hobbies are crocheting, reading, shopping, going to concerts, and doing jigsaw puzzles. I like 80's music and country music. My very favorite thing to do is country line dancing! (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 Artie's, Dolce, Panera, and Chimney Rock. Spending time with my family and friends is what I enjoy the most.
