Eileen was a hardworking, loving, compassionate special education teacher. She graduated from Seton Hall with a Bachelor Degree in Education. At the request of her building principal, Eileen was one of the first teachers to return to school to receive her Masters in Special Education. He knew Eileen was a gifted educator and her calling was to work with special education students. She shared that gift with many students in her twenty two years teaching at Public School 32 in Jersey City.
