My name is Jennifer Minerva and this is my 19th year teaching at Long Beach Catholic School. Both the school and the community of Long Beach have become my second home. I have taught several grades over my many years here and I'm so excited to teach 1st grade this year.
I received my Bachelors Degree from Molloy College in Psychology and Elementary Education. I have a Masters Degree from Adelphi University in Reading, as well a second Masters Degree in Social Work from Fordham University.
In my spare time I enjoy spending being with my nieces and nephew, reading and running. I've run several half marathons and have run the New York City Marathon twice. My all time favorite thing to do is spend time with my 6 month old son Jack.
