    Welcome to Kindergarten, scholars of Room 5!  My name is Tara Stevens and I'm a Kindergarten teacher here at Rosa Parks Community School.  I have been teaching in Orange for 18 years, and have spent the last 9 of those in Kindergarten.  I look forward to having a successful, rewarding, challenging, and exciting year with your child! 
    This year, I have the privilege of hosting a student teacher from Montclair State University, Miss Coccoz.  She will be with us on a daily basis until December and we are happy to have her experience Kindergarten in our classroom!
    Parents, if you have any questions or concerns, feel free to email me any time at:  steventa@orange.k12.nj.us
