Hello 5th Grade Parents and Students,

My name is Mrs. Verton. I am the 5th grade teacher and am so excited to begin this school year. Just a little bit about myself, I am a 1996 graduate of Lycoming College in Williamsport, PA (best known for the Little League World Series). I have a B.A. in English Literature with a concentration in Education. After graduation, I taught for seven years. My first year in 1997 I taught 9th, 11th and 12th grade English at a full-time vocational school in PA. After that, in 1998, I moved to Baltimore, MD and taught 8th grade English/Language Arts. During my time in MD, I was also a grade level Team Leader and the English Department Chairperson. My family moved to New Jersey in 2004, which is when I became a stay-at-home Mom, before opening a business in both Woodstown and Swedesboro.

This year is my third years at GARS. Returning to the classroom has been such a gift to me. I missed my time away! Teaching in a Catholic School has always been a dream of mine. I enjoy giving back to the Catholic School system that provided me with 13 wonderful years of education. Thank you for entrusting your child to me this year. Below is my email address. Feel free to reach out at any time and I will do my best to get back to you within 24 hours. In addition to your child's agenda book, you can use this page to check homework assignments, projects and test dates. It is going to be a GREAT year!

God Bless, Mrs. Verton
