Meet our new Kindergarten Teacher! 

Mrs. Donigian Is excited to start her new position with SJA in September. 

 In Mrs. Donigians spare time, she and her husband raised three girls who are all out on their own.  They enjoy spending time with  friends and family. They love to travel and spend time at the beach. 

 Mrs. Donigian traveled to Armenia on a bucket list pilgrimage with friends in 2019 and she hopes to travel to the Christian quarter in Jerusalem in the near future.

A little-known fact about Mrs. Donigian is that she and her husband love riding on his motorcycle to far-away places like Maine, and the Blue Ridge mountains, and as far west as Wisconsin.

Mrs. Donigian holds a BA in Special Education. Mrs. Donigian also holds n-8 certification in the State of New Jersey. Before coming to SJA, Mrs. D. worked for a few years at a nearby public school district. I am sure she and Miss Ludwig, our returning kindergarten teacher, and Mrs. Donigian will make an excellent kindergarten team for our two classes!
