Welcome to Kindergarten!
Hello, I am Jennifer Mangiapanella and am the kindergarten teacher at Hamilton Elementary. I graduated from SUNY New Paltz with a Bachelors degree in Elementary Education. For the past two years I taught kindergarten at Beantree in Ashburn, Virginia. I have more than 13 years experience working with children as a teacher, teaching assistant, and as a director of the Boys and Girls club in New York. As you can imagine, I love working with children.
While I am not teaching I am busy with my two sons. My oldest will be attending his first year at Stone Hill Middle School and my youngest will be starting kindergarten this fall. I am a huge Disney fan, enjoy scrapbooking, and visiting all the local sites Northern Virginia has to offer.
I look forward to a great year with your children. Kindergarten is an exciting, fun-filled year where we set the foundation and promote a love of learning. It is going to be a fantastic year!
