Hello! My name is Mrs. Theresa Milow and I teach second grade at MTES. I have an undergraduate degree in Psychology from Stockton College and a Masters Degree in Elementary Education from Monmouth University. I have been teaching at Mendham Township Elementary School since 2001. I have taught second, third, and fourth grades.
I live nearby in Morristown and enjoy spending time with my family. Mr. Milow and I have two great kids, one in sixth grade and one in fourth grade. When I’m not teaching, I enjoy reading, cooking, traveling, and spending time outside.
It is a pleasure watching children grow academically, socially, and emotionally throughout the year. In my classroom I try to foster a love of learning, a willingness to take risks and make mistakes, a positive growth mindset, and the importance of practicing the Golden Rule (treating others the way you would like to be treated).
My name is Darlyne Pieper and I am delighted to be your child's second grade teacher. The year is off to a great start and I am looking forward to many new and exciting times in the year ahead.
Welcome to Mrs. Pieper's Second Grade Classroom: The Super Stars!
I am confident we will have a wonderful year. The second grade curriculum is a lot of fun. We will be learning to think while we read, write and publish more exciting stories, add and subtract three-digit numbers, and so much more!! We will study ourselves, our community, and other places across the United States. We will learn about our bones, the weather, solids and liquids, and fossils. We also will be reading many wonderful books and creating fun projects. You will be proud to see how much your child has accomplished by the end of the school year next June.
I love teaching second grade! The children are at the age where they are excited to learn new things, to explore the world around them, and to embrace new ideas. I strongly believe a child doesn't care how much you know until he/she knows how much you care. I care very much about your child, and his/her success as a student. I look forward to forging a partnership with you to ensure that your child knows he/she is cared for very much.
A little about me… I grew up the daughter of an Air Force pilot, living and traveling around the world. I earned a BA from Vanderbilt University and an MBA from George Washington University. I hold a NJ Teaching Certification K-6 and have been teaching elementary school since 2001. My husband and I live in Basking Ridge and have successfully launched our two sons. We will just bookmark that subject for now. I am sure your child will share some stories over the course of the year.
I look forward to getting to know you and working together this school year!
Welcome to 2nd Grade!
For more than 15 years, I have worked at Mendham Township Elementary School in many different capacities. I have taught students in both the general education and special education setting in 1st, 3rd, and 4th grades, but this year I am extremely excited to teach 2nd grade!
When I am not at work, I am spending time with my family at our home in Somerville. I have a 9 year old son, Luca, and 6 year old daughter, Anna. We are big Mets fans and LOVE Disney World! Besides that, I love to sing... expect your child to come home with several stories of Mrs. Porrovecchio breaking out into song during one of our lessons. Yes, they're true!
