Welcome to Second Grade!


My name is Kristen Grycuk.  I am the second grade teacher at Gavlak Elementary School.  I grew up in Wallington and graduated from Wallington High School.  From there I went to William Paterson and graduated with a B.A. in Elementary Education (K-8) and a minor in psychology.  I have been teaching in Wallington for 12 years.  I taught 3rd grade for 8 years and 1st grade for 3 years.  

I am very excited to be your child's second grade teacher. I look forward to working with you and your child to make this a positive learning experience.  My goal is to have your child develop a love for learning and to become a lifelong learner. Working as a team will provide a foundation fo your's child's educational and social development.
