Welcome to Kindergarten!!!!!

My name is Ms. Lauren Merola. I have my M.S. Ed. in Literacy Education from Long Island University in Brentwood and my B.A. in Child Study from St. Joseph's College in Patchogue. I have been teaching for ten years and have worked in both the primary and intermediate grades. Prior to starting at Saints Philip and James School, I taught kindergarten at Notre Dame School in New Hyde Park for three years.

Kindergarten holds a special place in my heart!! I am very excited about starting my first year as part of the Saints Philip and James School community!!!! I look forward to a fun and exciting year of growing and learning together!!!
