• Hello Parents and Guardians:

    Welcome to another incredible year at Ravine Drive School! My name is Mrs. Paone-Hurd, and I am going to be your child's 3rd  grade teacher. It is going to be an amazing year together filled with fun and adventures, and I joyfully invite you to be an active part of this educational growth with your child! I cannot wait to begin this quest of learning and growing together with your child, and I hope you are just as excited!  

    My journey as a teacher began in January 2015 when I graduated from Monmouth University with a bachelor's degree in English and Elementary Education, as well as an English as a Second Language endorsement. I am thrilled to bring my experiences and passion for teaching to your students in Matawan-Aberdeen Regional School District.

    My favorite things about 3rd grade are: math agendas, flashlight reading, and Shake It Off Time! I will tell you all about them very soon. We will read, learn, and grow together through the next year. We will work with Everyday Math, Literacy By Design through and Reader's and Writer's Workshops as well as Social Studies and Science. This transition will be hard work, but I am up for the challenge, and I hope you are too! 

    Let's continue the learning and all of the opportunities that 3rd grade has to offer, TOGETHER!

    Please do not hesitate to reach out to me at any time with any questions or concerns at kpaonehurd@marsd.org! Otherwise, I look forward to meeting you at Back-to-School Night.

    Welcome to 3rd grade!

    All the best,

    Mrs. Paone-Hurd
