• Meet Miss Svenson! 


    Hello!  My name is Mrs. Thiel, and I am so excited to be your child’s first grade teacher this year!  I absolutely LOVE teaching and I am looking forward to having your child in my class!  I cannot wait to see what this year will have in store for us!  I want to know ALL about your child, but first I would like to tell you a few things about myself.

    This is my sixth year teaching and I love being a part of Cliffwood Elementary School!  I was born and raised in Middletown, New Jersey, where I grew up with my two younger brothers.  I have two dogs named Sunny and Presley, and I ADORE both of them very much!  I graduated from Kean University, where I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Special Education.  I love traveling, riding my Peloton, spending time with my husband and family,Target, and Starbucks coffee!  Teaching has always been my dream job since I was in elementary school, and I feel incredibly grateful to have a job that I ABSOLUTELY love.  

    In my first grade classroom, I strive to create a differentiated learning environment that promotes problem solving, higher level thinking, and supports students in reaching their full potential.  I am confident that my students are going to learn so much this year and also have A LOT of fun while doing so!  I look forward to a wonderful school year with both you and your child!  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at athiel@marsd.org.
