Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Taffera

I'm glad you're visiting to my website!

Let me tell you a little about myself!

I graduated from Kean University Cum Laude in 2001.  I am certified as a special education teacher, regular education teacher and language arts teacher.  I began teaching in 2001 in Woodbridge, NJ as a self contained special education teacher.  I was lucky enough to work there for 5 years before coming to Kingwood Township School in 2006.  I began at KTS as a special education teacher. I have taught or supported a variety of classrooms in both the elementary and middle school.  I have been teaching First Grade since 2013 and I am thrilled to do so. 

I am married to my husband, Chris, and we have 3 children.  Although we do not live in Kingwood, I use school choice and my children are students at Kingwood School. I truly believe KTS is an amazing place to work and learn.  

My philosphy for teaching is simple:

I believe that children thrive when they feel safe and understood.  I aim to create an enviroment where each child is honored for their unique self. By providing a predicatable routine, students understand what is expected and feel confident to take risks and are open to learning.  

I love my job and am thrilled to be working with your child!
