• 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 also graduated with my Master of Arts in Educational Leadership in May 2021. I am thrilled to continue bring my educational background, experiences and passion for teaching, learning and developing to your our class in the Matawan-Aberdeen Regional School District.

    My favorite things about 3rd grade are: brain breaks, writing and Pencil Wars! I will tell you all about them VERY soon. We will read, learn, and grow together through this next year, no matter what the year holds for us! We will work with Everyday Math for mathematics instruction, myView Savvas for reading and writing as well as content learning for social studies and science. This transition will be hard work, but I am up for the challenge, and I know 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
