Betty McElmon Elementary
Thank you to Monmouth University for sponsoring this special program during the 2013-2014 school year that recognizes students who demonstrate academic excellence and character education in the classroom.
Our School Philosophy
The climate in a Primary Elementary School should be one that nurtures students, staff and parents. Children must feel secure and safe in an environment that allows them to explore, make mistakes, learn responsibility and experience joy. I believe in a strong emphasis on direct instruction and experiential learning. Guided instruction and cooperative learning teach children respect and organizational skills. Technology is an important tool to enhance instruction and prepare our students for the future, but it can never replace a solid teacher.
A teacher that is a life-long learner will develop a program to use technology as a means of exploring and integrating the curriculum. Teachers should experience learning through self-evaluation. The Administrator should be a role model for learning and positive attitude. Students, staff and parents should feel pride when they enter our building.
