Mrs. Laina Penrose

Hello, my name is Laina Penrose. This is my sixteenth year teaching at Weston Elementary School.  I started out as a first grade teacher and loved all 9 years of it!  Now I am in second and focus on teaching Reading Intervention and there is just as much to enjoy. I get to do my favorite with students.  

I attended college at Montclair State University for my bachelors degree and completed my Masters degree through Georgian Court University in Education with a focus on Reading/Literacy. I have my Reading Specialist Certification and have recieved training in the Orton Gillingham approach.

I live in Hillsborough, NJ with my husband and two cats. I have two younger sisters and am lucky to have 4 nieces.  In my free time I enjoy reading, diving and traveling.
