Carrie Nasile 

Hello!  My name is Carrie Nasile and I am the Assistant Teacher in the Green Room with the PSI class.

I have been working with young children for 7 years. I have worked with children from infancy to age 5. I enjoy all ages and love watching the children enjoy learning new things every day.

I have been a lifelong resident of Hopewell Township.  I had such a great experience growing up along the Delaware River with my 8 older siblings!  My husband, Jerry, and I have 2 children and now 2 beautiful grandchildren.  It is such a joy being a mother and now a grandmother!

I love to read, spend time with my grandchildren, travel and take walks and golfing. I enjoy coming in to work each day to see the children’s smiles and to receive their hugs.  What a way to start the day!

I am so excited to be back and working with your children after the stay-at-home order was lifted.  Although I enjoyed the time cooking and cleaning at home, I love being at LA with all of our friends in the Green Room!

I am currently a student at Raritan Valley Community College (RVCC) studying visual arts. My ultimate goal is to become a high school art teacher and children’s book illustrator. 

I have worked with children in a variety of settings for about 10 years now. I am absolutely passionate about helping children connect with their creativity and I firmly believe that every child is an artist. 

In my spare time, I love to make digital art. I love to combine my love of sci-fi and fantasy with my love of fashion and create sci-fi and fantasy-inspired fashion illustrations. I also coach youth cheerleading and love traveling and spending time with my family and friends.
