Hi! My name is Amanda Fullem, I graduated from Centenary University in 2018. Right after college I began my teaching career as a second grade teacher. I also had the opportunity to be an after school reading support teacher, where I lead small group instruction in the Wilson Reading Program. This will be my first year teaching at MTES, and I am very excited to be working with the awesome staff, students, and families.
When I am not teaching I enjoy playing and coaching volleyball, relaxing on the beach, and spending time with family and friends.
I am looking forward to building a safe and caring relationship with all of my students, where they feel confident and happy coming into the classroom every morning. My goal is for my students to love to learn, while having fun doing so.
I am very excited for this school year and to see my students grow not just academically, but emotionally and socially.

Hello! My name is Mrs. Kristin Miller. I graduated with a Special Education Degree from Bloomsburg University in May 2002. I have been a special education teacher in Mendham Township School District since September 2002. During that time, I have worked with a wide range of children, grades Pre-K to 5.
My duties here at MTES have been diverse, to say the least. A majority of my years at MTES has been spent teaching math and language arts in the resource room. However, my tenure has also included time as a pre-school teacher and working with another educator in a co-teaching environment. In 2005, I finished my masters program in education. Both my advanced schooling and my varied teaching assignments have contributed to my growth as an educator.
Outside of school, I spend my time with my husband, kids and dogs. We love to be outside, whenever we get the chance! My kids love animals, so we enjoy exploring nature or visiting a zoo to see all of the different animals. Watching my children grow and learn has taught me so much about myself and has brought me so much joy! Being a mother has also enabled me to understand better the needs of not only the children in my care, but their parents’ concerns as well. I am truly a different person from the graduate who walked into MTES in 2002.
I am excited about this upcoming school year! I can't wait to learn about your children, hear all of their individual stories, and help make their year both happy and academically successful. It is going to be a fabulous year!
