Mrs. Chirichella

   Welcome to First Grade!


~We May All Be Different But In This School We All Swim Together As One Family~


      My name is Mrs. Chirichella!  I am currently in my 17th year of teaching.  I have taught all 17 years here at Alexander in both 1st and 2nd grade.  It is a joy to work at Alexander being it is where I spent my childhood years learning!  I am also fortunate to have my own children go through Alexander School as well.  My husband and I have 3 children!  My daughter is in 6th grade and my son is in 4rd grade. I also have a 4 year old son in preschool.  They keep me busy! When I'm not teaching I'm cheering my children on from the sidelines whether it is at soccer, basketball, or dance!  

      As, mentioned previously I attended Alexander Elementary School.  I also attended Reynolds Middle School and went to Steinert High School.  I graduated with a Bachelor's Degree from William Paterson University and received my Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Rider University. 

     Although this year is not like any other, I am looking forward to a wonderful year working with your child!
