Hello. My name is Jocelyn Cura. I am very excited to be part of your child's education here at Coral Academy. I am from Toms River, NJ and no matter how long I have resided here I still consider myself " a jersey girl'. I have my undergrad in Psychology and worked as a Social worker for the elderly in NJ. I changed gears and looked towards teaching.. I received my Master's in Elementary Education, from Regis Univ. and have been teaching for nine years now. Prior to Coral, I taught Kindergarten for two years in a private school and five years in the only public charter Montessori based school in Vegas. I taught a multi-level class of 1st through 3rd graders. A "modern day Little House on the Prairie" if you will.. I contribute my love of learning and my true calling to my grandmother. She and I will forever hold a special bond, as she was a teacher herself. I love spending time with my son, Max, who is in 6th grade now ( my how time flies ) when I am not teaching.
