About Mrs. Cioffi

Teri L. Cioffi, Principal



I am beyond excited to spend another school year at Endeavour!! I began my teaching career in Keansburg, NJ as a kindergarten teacher.  My first year mentor, who was a Literacy Coach and a reading specialist, sparked a passion in me that has only grown throughout my years of teaching.  I learned many strategies from her in order to support struggling readers and writers; however, I needed to learn more!!  I attended New Jersey City University and obtained a Master’s Degree in Reading with a Reading Specialist Certification, as well as a Supervisor Certification.  I honed those skills while teaching first grade in Avon, NJ.  I then became a Literacy Coach in Marlboro, NJ.  There, I began learning more about the administrative aspect of education and decided to further my education and career by attending the NJEXCEL program in order to obtain my Administrator Certification.  This program has expertly woven all of my experiences together and has prepared me to take on this new role.  I am thrilled to have the opportunity to put my years of education and experience to good use at Endeavour Elementary.  

My favorite thing to do at school is to visit classrooms, the lunchroom, recess--basically anywhere that I may interact with the students.  I love seeing the world from their perspective and enjoy having discussions with them about all things important to children.  I also love to read stories to the children and have a HUGE collection of books to choose from as I simply cannot pass up a great book!  I also love visiting classrooms and I always learn something new from these amazing students and their teachers.  

In my spare time, I enjoy reading (big surprise!), learning new things, listening to music and going to the beach. I also love hanging out with my family.  I have a wonderful husband, who has been my best friend for over 25 years, as well as two children who are just entering the world as young adults.  Joey (23) has just graduated from Penn State as an Aerospace Engineer and my daughter Cassie (21) is studying to be a physical therapist at Stockton University.  I am so incredibly proud of them!! 

I am looking forward to the school year!!!
