Mrs. Vander Molen joined the First Grade Team at FHR in 2011. She has a BA in Elementary Education and a Masters Degree in Language Arts from William Paterson University. Before coming to FHR she taught First Grade at Lowes Island Elementary for six years. Mrs. V. also taught for thirteen years in Northern New Jersey. Although she has had experience in many different grade levels, First Grade is her favorite! When she's not teaching she enjoys spending time with her husband and two daughters, reading, cooking, watching movies, and cheering on her favorite teams the NJ Devils, NY Yankees, and NY Giants. Mrs. V. is looking forward to another super year teaching First Grade at Frances Hazel Reid!
"Keep moving forward opening new doors, and doing new things,
because we're curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths."
