Mr. McManus / 7th grade Language Arts
Hello! This is my second year at Freehold Intermediate School and sixth year as a whole. I’m excited to begin the school year and am looking forward to meeting this new crop of students. Together with the 7th grade team, I will work to ensure a positive and successful year for this year’s scholars.
Before becoming a 7th grade Language Arts teacher in Freehold, I taught 6th and 7th grade Language Arts at Alexander Batcho Intermediate School in Manville, NJ where I spent four years. Prior to, in Staten Island, New York, I was one of a few selected recruits chosen by the New York City Department of Education as a member of the Middle School Spring Classroom Apprenticeship.
It is my goal and passion to continue to make a productive contribution to Freehold, utilizing my education, strengths, and experiences to create a positive learning environment to adolescents. Here’s to a successful new year.
