Pre-K 4's Class
Hello! My name is Mrs. Harney and I am very excited to be at Hornblower Early Childhood Center this year! While this is my first year in the Belleville Public School District, I have had the joy of working in early childhood education since 1999. I hold my Masters in Education and New Jersey State certifications in teaching grades preschool through 8th grade, as well as with teaching students with disabilities. Additionally, I am an adjunct professor at Montclair State University where I teach future elementary and preschool educators. My philosophy is that all children learn best when their individual needs are understood and met. Teachers patiently guide, provide meaningful learning experiences and offer a place where students feel safe and secure in trying new things. Young children are innately enthusiastic to discover the world around them and to connect with other children. Our incredible preschool is the ideal place to allow for these opportunities and I am grateful to be a part of each one of their journeys!
