Samantha Nardelli
Closter Lower School, Teacher - Class 1A

I have worked at Palisades since 2014 as a head teacher in the three-year old program. I have a Bachelor’s of Arts Degree from Montclair State University in Family and Child Studies.  I previously worked at a Preschool in the toddler program for two years before beginning my professional journey at Palisades.  Every day is a blessing here at Palisades. It is the most nurturing, loving, and fun environment for both students and staff. I strive to make sure my students feel safe, comfortable, and loved in my classroom. I love spending time with my mom, creating new recipes for sugar scrubs, watching sunsets on the bay, and reading new books.
