About Me

Welcome to my classroom art teacher page. My name is Ms. Milazzo I am the art teacher at Marlboro Elementary School. I received my Fine Arts Teaching Certification at Kean University.  I have a grown son named Daniel who is getting married in 2021. I have 2 cats and 5 chickens. When I am not planning on lessons for school, I am painting pictures of scenes around the world or practicing my ukulele. I enjoy digging the earth for buried history, finding shapes in the clouds, and saying good night to the moon. 


Becoming an art teacher has been a life long plan for me.  My great Aunt Jean worked at a paintbrush factory in Queens, NY, and would send me shoeboxes filled with brushes every year, starting from my 13th birthday.  I bought a "Jon Gnagy Learn to Draw" kit soon after. Since then, I have continued to draw, paint, learn, and create.  I would enter contests and give art as gifts.  It always made me feel good inside. 


If you find that something allows you to feel that way, you too should stick with it.


As always,  I am very much looking forward to a year full of creativity and color.  If you have any questions please contact [email protected] and I will reply as soon as I am able to do so.

Hi kids!!! I just wanted to say, I am proud of you. I am proud that you keep going when we have a big obstacle in our way.  It is not easy for anyone but you keep checking back, you keep doing the best you can.
I really miss you all so very much.  It is okay that you do not make art every day. I know it is hard to keep up with everything. But once in a while, when you find yourself sitting around for a moment, do a little doodle. Do something you already know. Do something we already made in the classroom. Show me. It does not have to be perfect. Absolutely not. Just something so we can connect in a visual art way.  Show me what little creativity you have hidden in your heart. 
I Miss you so very much.  Ms. Milazzo <3
