Miss Maria Petruzzelli


My name is Miss Petruzzelli. This is my fourth year at Wedgwood and my fourth year co-teaching with Miss DiGrazio! 

I graduated from Montclair State University in 2013 with a degree in Family and Child Studies and a concentration in K-6 Elementary Education. After graduating, I took some time off to pursue a dream of mine, which was to work for The Walt Disney Company! I spent at year interning at Walt Disney World, where I was a Conservation Education Presenter. After finishing my internship, I came back to New Jersey, became a substitute teacher, and started my Master’s Program in Special Education at Rowan. In January 2017, I received my first full-time teaching job at Thomas Jefferson Elementary School, where I taught 4th grade. I also I earned my Master’s Degree in Special Education from Rowan University in August 2017.

When I am not teaching, I enjoy traveling, practicing yoga, reading a good book (usually at the beach), and spending time with my family, friends, and two cats!
