Ms. Dina M. Agliata

Dear Parents and Guardians,

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself.  My name is Ms. Agliata and I am so excited to be your child’s First Grade Teacher.  During the year, I will be teaching your children subjects; Math English Language Arts, Science, and Social Studies. 

This will be my 23rd year teaching and 21st. year here at Minue School.  Before my time at Minue, I have also completed two years of experience teaching in the Elizabeth School District and partial time in the business world while earning my Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Kean University.  In addition, I have a Master’s Degree in both Education and Clinical Mental Health.  Once completed, I was granted certifications in School Counseling, School Social Work, and High School Psychology.  Outside of teaching I enjoy time with friends, family, gardening, baking, and traveling!

Throughout the year, it is important to have a strong parent-teacher relationship.  If at any time you have any questions or concerns please contact me at or send a message through the "Remind" App during regular school hours.  It is also important to please check my Google Classroom often for assignments as well as important updates.  I update weekly as much as possible with reminders, news, homework, and other information that might be helpful and useful.

I am thrilled to be starting on this year’s journey with your child!  I look forward to watching them learn, grow and have a fantastic time in First Grade! Where great experiences and cherished memories will be made!

Ms. Agliata
