I am delighted to be a part of such a great school community!   My name is Karen Jans and I am a Small Group Instruction Teacher at Dorchester Elementary.  I am married and have three wonderful children and two amazing grandchildren.  I graduated from Ramapo College with a degree in psychology and my Elementary Education certification.  I continued my education at William Paterson University, where I received my Teacher of Students with Disabilities certification.  Because I love learning almost as much as I love teaching, I continue to seek educational opportunities and information to enhance student success.

I am looking forward to helping your child experience the wonder and excitement that comes with learning something new every day.

Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns.  The best way to contact me is via email at:

 I look forward to hearing from you!
