Karen Uricoli-Koberle

Hello Everyone! My name is Karen Uricoli-Koberle. The children call me Ms. Karen. I have been a preschool teacher for about 30 years!  I have worked in many schools and am very happy to have landed at Ignacio Cruz Early Childhood Center. I earned my Bachelor's Degree at Montclair University (Montclair State College) and my Master's Degree at Kean University (Kean College).  I am a seasoned teacher but I am energized by young little curious minds and passionate hearts.  My hope is that every child in my classroom feels happy and comfortable being themselves.  Exploring the world of learning should be  fun and exciting through a variety of materials and meaningful experiences. Every child comes with a culture of their own and is welcome to share their thoughts and ideas as we all learn together. I look forward to a fun year of growing and learning together!
