Hi!  I'm Mrs. Babcock!
       I'm so excited to be working with you and your child!  This is going to be a year filled with fun, learning, and lots of adventures!  I can't wait to see what this year of learning has in store for us!  
       I thought you might like to know a little bit about me.  I grew up in Ridgewood, New Jersey where my parents still reside. My sister is also a teacher.  She teaches in a one room schoolhouse on an island off the coast of Maine.   I am married to my wonderful husband, and we have three children.  Brendan is in Eigth Grade, Brady is in Sixth Grade and Madelyn is in Fourth Grade. Some of my hobbies include gardening, cooking, baking, making jewelry, and playing basketball with my family.
    My passion is teaching.  It is my mission to instill a love of learning in my students so they develop a desire to become life-long learners.
