5-507 Ms. Miller


Hi, My name is Lauren Miller and I am a 5th grade teacher. This is my 11th year teaching elementary school. I started my teaching career as a Kindergarten teacher at PS 154 in Manhattan. I taught there for 4 years and came to PS 51 in 2007 as a 1st grade teacher. Since then, I have taught 2nd, 3rd, and now 5th grade. I have a Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education from the University of Delaware, a Master's degree in Literacy from Bank Street College, and a Master's degree in Education Administration from Fordham University.  At PS 51 I also serve as the Instructional Lead teacher for Literacy and  the chairperson of the School Leadership Team.

Hi, I am Maria Ronne and I will be working alongside Mrs. Levine in the 5th grade ICT classroom! This will be my fourth year teaching at PS 51 and I am extremely excited to work with a lot of my students from class 408. I have a Bachelor's of Science in Childhood Education and am currently working on my Master's degree in Early Childhood and Special Education. In addition, my husband and I are having a blast being first time parents to our daughter Adelaide and exploring our new neighborhood in Hudson Heights. I look forward to a year full of learning and lots of fun with you and your children!

Hello! My name is Allison Levine and I am so excited to be your child's fifth grade teacher. I am the Special Education Teacher in class 5-507 with my partner Mrs. Ronne. I am so lucky to be teaching at such a warm, loving and beautiful new school! This is my fourth year as a teacher. I started as a maternity leave substitute for the first grade ICT class and continued to take over a fourth grade general education position for the rest of the school year. This is my fourth year in fifth grade! I love it! It is bitter sweet watching my students graduate and become middle school students but I am happy to say they do come back and visit me :) I completed my Undergraduate degree at Penn State University. I completed my Masters at Touro College with a degree in General and Special Education. In my free time, I love to spend time with my husband Jon, and our (almost 1 year old) son Jax! I am looking forward to an exciting and fulfilling school year! We are always here if you need us!
