Mrs. Maria LaCroce


My name is Mrs. LaCroce! This is my sixth year at Wedgwood, co-teaching with Mrs. DiGrazio-Mills! 

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 a year interning at Walt Disney World, where I was a Conservation Education Presenter. After finishing my internship, I came back to New Jersey and started the 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 and earned my Master’s Degree in Special Education.

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!
