Mrs. Charlene Singer
My name is Charlene Singer and I teach fourth grade at Beverly City School. Fourth grade offers students the opportunity for significant change as individuals and scholars. It holds promise to a fantastic year with changes to come and lots to learn.
My background in education spans to the early 1990s, however my interest in teaching goes back to my childhood. After growing up in Medford, NJ and graduating from Holy Cross High School, in Delran, I graduated cum laude from The College of New Jersey with a bachelors degree in history, an elementary teaching certificate, and a social studies teaching certificate. At TCNJ, I was also a member of the history and education honor societies.
Immediately after graduating, I began my teaching career in Camden, NJ, where for four years I taught at Dudley Elementary School. In 2001, I joined the faculty at Beverly City School. Since then, I had the opportunity to teach every grade level from kindergarten through 8th grade, as well as a couple years in middle school social studies. This ranging experience has provided me experience at every level, and insight into how students progress over time. Although I've garnered experience in all grades, I thoroughly enjoy fourth grade because it's a marvelous age of student exploration, growth, and blends the wonder of childhood with the emerging academic in each child.
My professional life is busy, but so is my personal life. I have been married since 1995 and my husband and I have two amazing daughters. I talk a lot about Mr. Singer and my girls and often use them to illustrate many examples during my lessons. They certainly keep me busy and we're proud of their myriad accomplishments. And, it's no secret that I also I just love, love, love my pets. We have two dogs and three cats-- all rescue animals-- and yes, they actually get along... most of the time. I also love science fiction (Star Trek, in particular), gardening (daisies are my favorite), rollercoasters, camping, and hiking.
My goal as an educator is to create a classroom environment and a learning relationship that empowers your child to not only succeed in fourth grade, but to be equipped with essential skills that will propel them forward on a mission of lifelong learning and accomplishment. I look forward to working with your child and to collaborating with you, their parents.
My door is always open and I am always available to talk.

"Watch your thoughts, for they become words.
Watch your words, for they become actions.
Watch your actions, for they become habits.
Watch your habits, for they become character.
Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny."
