Mrs. Gardner's Biography

Hello St. Mary families! I am Mrs. Gardner and am thrilled to be part of the St. Mary family. This is my second year at St. Mary School. I teach third grade and I feel so blessed to have your children in my class this year. I look forward to watching them grow spiritually and academically.
I am fortunate to have had the opportunity to teach in the public and private school systems in New York City and on Long Island, and look forward to bringing the best of those experiences to St. Mary's. I have been a religious education instructor in my Parish and love incorporating our faith in our learning.

I have a Masters Degree in Elementary Education, a Bachelor's Degree in General Education, and an Associate's Degree in Early Childhood Education. I am a lifelong Long Islander, where my husband and I are raising four beautiful children and two dogs.
I look forward to an exciting and rewarding school year!
