Hi! My name is Ms. Agnello and I am going to be your child's first grade teacher! This will be my 3rd year teaching at Franklin Towne in First grade. I feel so lucky to be part of the Towne team and love Franklin Towne! I love teaching and watching little minds shape and mold into wonderful little readers, writers, mathematicians, etc. My favorite thing in the whole wide world is when the light bulb turns on because a kiddo gets it! I am very excited to work with you and your child this year!
I grew up in Marlton, New Jersey and graduated with my Bachelors Degree from Temple University. Go Owls! This summer I completed my master's degree in reading from Wilkes University. Learning never ends, which is why I continue to take classes and learn new things to help educate my students. 
In my free time I love to read, play with my dog, and spend time with my friends and family. I am in the process of planning my wedding and am excited to be a bride July 2019!
We are a team! I want to make sure that together we are always making the best decisions for your child. Please don't ever hesitate to contact me for any reason.
