Welcome to Ms. Lombardo's Owl Class!!! I am looking forward to providing your child with an exciting, challenging, and memorable school year. This will be my seventh year in the Mendham Township School District. I am very grateful to be a member of the fourth grade team again this year.
In 2011, I earned my teacher's certification (K-6) from the College of St. Elizabeth's. Prior to receiving my teacher's certification, I attained an Undergraduate and Graduate degree from Fairleigh Dickinson University in Community and Social Psychology. I enjoy bringing my social psychology background to the classroom. In the summer of 2017, I completed my Teacher of Students with Disability certification from Rutgers University.
As a class, we will strive to form a cohesive sense of community within the classroom. It is very important for me as a teacher and parent to encourage children to form a love for learning. My wish is that each child looks forward to attending school each day.
I live in Mendham with my three children Hope, Alex, and Siena, and Bill our Scotti Apso. I can always be reached via email: email@example.com or (973) 543-7107.
Best wishes for a wonderful 2019-2020 school year,

Hello and welcome to 4th grade! My name is Theresa McNamara. This is my 17th year teaching, and fourteen of those years have been right here at MTES! I realized when I was in high school that I wanted to be a teacher. At the time I was very involved in competitive Irish Dance and was often called upon to teach younger students at my dance school. I enjoyed the opportunity to help and see younger dance students improve their skills and gain confidence. I feel lucky that I learned at an early age what my passion would be as an adult. I graduated from Rutgers University with a Masters degree in Elementary Education. Since graduating I have always taught students in 4th and 5th grades, so I am well versed in preparing students for middle school and the world beyond.
I live in Montville, NJ with my husband, two sons (ages six and seven), and our dog, Lakota. We love spending time playing outdoors! Naturally, our two boys keep us quite busy and there is a lot of laughter in our house.
I enjoy teaching all subjects, but I particularly love history and I hope to instill that in my students. I think it is so wonderful that we live in an area that is rich with historical significance and I enjoy traveling to museums, monuments, battlefields, etc, to learn more about the past. I bring my new knowledge back to the classroom to share with my students and encourage them to visit historical places with their families as well!
I am also obsessed with all things Harry Potter and my classroom is designed to reflect this!
I am looking forward to an exciting year! 4th grade is filled with amazing experiences and opportunities. Your last year at MTES will be a wonderful one!
