Hi! My name is Mrs. Russoniello & I currently teach art at both Aldene and Sherman Schools in Roselle Park, NJ. As your child's art teacher, I would like to share a little about myself.

I have been teaching in the Roselle Park School district since 1999. Prior to teaching art, I was a 5th grade classroom teacher at St. Theresa's School in Linden, NJ for one year. I am dually certified in both art education K-12 and elementary education K-8.

I received my Masters in Fine Arts Education from Kean University in 2005 and my Bachelors of Science degree from Seton Hall University in 1998. I graduated with Highest Honors from Seton Hall and received the Fine Arts Department Honors Citation Award. I am now working on obtaining my Plus 30 credits at the Regional Training Center run by the College of NJ.

I was the State Youth Art Month Chair and the Advocacy Chair for the Art Educators of NJ's Executive Board from 2006-2011. My proudest moment was when I was awarded both Teacher of the Year at Aldene School and NJ's Elementary Division Art Teacher in 2005.

As a child, I grew up in Roselle Park and attended Sherman School.

I absolutely love learning about art. I enjoy going to art museums and galleries and reading about famous artists. I also enjoy music, movies, shopping and seeing Broadway musicals with Mrs. Green!

Please feel free to explore my website to learn more about me and more about the art program at Aldene & Sherman Schools.
