Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Tracy Misata
This year begins my 9th year of teaching at Thomas Jefferson. I am excited to be working as the In-class Resource teacher for Math and Science/Social Studies in fourth grade, along with Ms. Lee. I started at TJ in the role of a Self-contained teacher and then I taught the Read 180 program and System 44 programs for 7 years. The last two years, I had the pleasure of working with students in all grades, kindergarten to fourth grade.
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 staff and students.
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 new puppy named Nash. I am a dog lover and I also enjoy camping and outdoor activities with my family. In addition, I enjoy listening to music (mostly country) audiobooks/podcasts, exercising, 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 email at firstname.lastname@example.org
