About me: 

My husband and I both grew up in Washington Township. We loved it so much that we also started a family of our own in Twp! We have a 6 month old daughter named Aubrey. I am a former TJ student, I loved this school! I also went to Orchard Valley and graduated from WTHS in 2006.  In first grade I told my mom that "when I grew up" I wanted to be an art teacher. I've followed my dream and couldn't be happier than to be able to teach art every day!


Teaching History:

I graduated from Rowan University in 2010 with a bachelor's degree in Art Eduation. When I graduated, I got my first job teaching art to grades 1-3 at Winslow's School Two. I taught one year there and then I came to TJ! I cannot believe this will be my 7th year here already!! I  love seeing the students getting excited about their artwork. Each year I can see how much growth each student has made since kindergarten art, and it truly is AMAZING. Hard work pays off! Great job TJ artists!!


Artfully yours,

Mrs. Colella
