• Welcome



    Dear Parents and Guardians,

    I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself.  My name is Javairia Swen, and I am so excited to be your child’s 3rd grade ELA teacher.  This year makes my 13th year in teaching and my 11th year teaching here at Forest Street School. I am a graduate of The College of NJ, and I posess a Bachelors of Science in elementary education and sociology.  I am looking forward to a year full of learning where my students will be challenged to become enthusiastic readers and critical thinkers.

    I have learned over the years that frequent communication between home and school is the key to creating an educational climate that is conducive to learning.  I am looking forward to working with you and your child to achieve this.  Together we can make a difference! Please check the school’s website often for homework assignments as well as important updates.  I update my page as much as possible with reminders, news, homework, and other information that might be helpful.

    I am thrilled to be starting on this year’s journey with your children!  I look forward to watching them learn, grow and have a fantastic time in 3rd grade!
