Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Tracy Misata
This year begins my 9th year of teaching at Thomas Jefferson. I started at TJ in the role of a Self-contained teacher for one year and for the last 7 years I have taught the Read 180 program to 4th and 5th grade. Last year I also had the pleasure of working with kindergarten, first and second graders. Which brings me to this year! I will fill a variety of roles this year and I look forward to working with your child no matter what grade or level that may be.
Originally from Lake George, NY, I have lived in New Jersey for the last 20 years. I graduated from SUNY Cortland with a degree in Health Education - way back when! :) Then once we moved to NJ, I was fortunate enough to be a stay at home mom to our children for many years. Once my own children were in school I returned to college to get certifications in Elementary Education and Teacher of Students with Disabilities from Rowan University. I spent several years substitute teaching and working in various roles from an elementary T-1 teacher to a middle school long term sub prior to landing at TJ. I feel so fortunate to have landed in such an amazing school with the most amazing fellow teachers.
When I am not at school, I enjoy spending time with family and friends. I am married with two grown children, Nicholas and Lauren, and a lovable, furry, four legged "baby" - Zoe. Yes, I am a self-proclaimed dog lover!! I also enjoy camping and outdoor activities with my family, in addition, I enjoy listening to audiobooks and podcasts, exercising, practicing yoga, and relaxing by just about any body of water.
I look forward to having a great year with your child. To reach me call: 856-589-8248 Ext. 3939 or email at email@example.com
