Teacher of the Year, Miss Spicuzzo


Hello Tiger Cubs and Lopez Family!

I am so excited to be the Rose M. Lopez Dual Language Elementary School's Governor's Educator of the Year. I am thrilled to represent all of you! Our school has so many amazing teachers therfore, I am humbled to have been chosen for such a distinguished honor!

I have had the privilege of teaching in Perth Amboy for the last 20 years. It has been a true pleasure serving the incredible children of this great town and their families. My students have made me the teacher I am today and for that, I would like to thank each of them. You have taught me more than I can ever teach you. Because of this, you all deserve a share in this honor!

I look forward to many more years of teaching and growing with all of you!!!
