Welcome to Kindergarten! My name is Kayla Tardogno, and I am excited to be your child's teacher. This is my second year as a Kindergarten teacher. Previously, I was a one-on-one classroom assistant for two years at an elementary school in New Jersey. I was born and grew up in Phoenix, Arizona and attended Glendale Community College for a few years. My husband and I moved to New Jersey in 2011 where I continued my education and received my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education and Psychology at Stockton University. We had enough of the cold winters and hurricanes, so we ventured back to Arizona in 2017 and we are loving the dry heat again! When I am not at school, I love spending time with my family. My husband and I have a dog, Brewer - He is our baby. Brewer is actually the main character in my children's literature series that I am in the process of writing. I developed an interest in children's literature while I was taking a college class. It is my goal to one day get my stories published. I hope to instill the excitement and joy of reading and writing in my students. I look forward to working with you this year, and let this adventure be successful and fun!
