Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Diane Morano

This will be my 9th year teaching First Grade! I started by teaching Early Intervention First Grade at the Horbelt School. I'm so excited for this new adventure at the Collins School!

I have a Bachelor's Degree in French from Rutgers University and a Master's Degree in Early Childhood Education from The College of New Jersey. In 2018, I was awarded Horbelt's Teacher of the Year by my colleagues. 

I love everything about first grade! I also love ice cream sandwiches, making lists, and cooking with my son. I love to travel and have visited 20 countries so far, throughout Europe and Asia.

I live in Shark River Hills with my husband, my son Miles, and my cat Sprout.
