About the Teacher

Hello! Welcome to Second Grade! I am Ms. VanderGoot. I am the second grade teacher at Oakwood Avenue Community School. I went to Fairleigh Dickinson University in Teaneck, New Jersey. I received my Bachelors in Psychology and Elementary Education. I also received my Masters in Elementary Education and Special Education. This is my second year in the Orange School District. 

In my time outside of school I enjoy playing and coaching softball and basketball! I love going to the beach, reading, and playing with my dog Teddy! 

I am pleased to welcome you to the 2023-2024 school year! I am looking forward to having your child as a student. Second grade is filled with so many wonderful learning activities!
