Welcome to Kindergarten

Welcome to Mr. Juan's class!

  • Welcome to our Kindergarten LLD classroom! We look forward to meeting your scholars!! I am your new teacher, Mr. Juan. This is my third year teaching in Orange Public Schools and my twelfth year overall in education. I received my associates degree in education from Essex County College. From there, I received my B.A. in Spanish and my dual teaching cert with special education from New Jersey City University. As an educator, my motto is, "Just as children expect to see their caregiver(s) every time they go home, they too expect to see their teacher every time they come to school." This is the best way I can describe my commitment and dedication to my profession, colleagues, and most importantly, my students. I work extremely hard in creating a warm, loving, and safe space for your children to grow, mature, and learn. 

    Ms. Spotwood is the paraprofessional in our classroom and works very closely with me. This is also her third year in Orange Public Schools. She holds a B.A. in Child Advocacy and Policy from Montclair State University. She shares my views on the importance of being consistent and present for our children in order to help them achieve their goals and objectives. We look very much forward to meeting you and your child!

    Please take a moment to go over the supply list on our supply page to be better prepared for the beginning of the school year. See you soon!!
