Who is Mrs. Carroll?

       Believe it or not, there is much more to me than my love for monkeys!
          While it's true that there are lots of monkeys and even some monkeying-around in my classroom, that's only a small part of who I am!
          I received my Bachelor's Degree in English at Villanova University and my elementary teaching certification from the College of St. Elizabeth.  My first love was writing and while I had short stories, poems and plays published, I later decided to become a teacher.  My love for children won out!  As for my writing career...I am a regular freelance writer for The Mailbox Magazine (The Idea Magazine for Teachers) and occasionally write poetry for myself, my students, and classroom lessons. I absolutely love teaching first grade and look forward to another wonderful year with Conley children and parents!
     Did you know? 
  • I  have a passion for singing...I ask my "firsties" to join in with me every chance we have!  
  • I love the color blue, dark chocolate, black licorice, and Long Beach Island, New Jersey.
  • I have an allegiance to the best team in baseball - The New York Yankees!
