|Hello and Welcome! My name is Beatrice Ortiz and I have been a part of the Franklin Family Since 2011. I have lived in North Bergen for most of my life and am happy to teach in the community I grew up in. I have a BA in Early Childhood Education and Psychology from NJCU. I am excited for your child to be in my classroom. First grade is a big leap from kindergarten, but with both you the parents and myself the teacher, we can ensure that your little ones will excel and be prepared for second grade. I look forward to all that will be covered and learned this school year. Let's make this an unforgettable one!
