Ms. Sieminski graduated from Rowan University in 2006 with my BA in English and went on to work for Buena Regional High School as a high school Language Arts teacher for 13 years. After earning her MLIS (Masters of Library and Information Science) from Rutgers University in 2019, she became a K-5 school librarian. In 2021, she joined Hammonton High School. She loves to travel, watch baseball, and spending time with her family.

My three favorite artists/bands are…Frank Sinatra, Adele, and Pitbull. I’m all over the place with my music selections.

Something that most people don’t know about me is that…my favorite subjects in high school were Algebra and Physics. My eleventh grade English teacher saw something in me that I was too stubborn to see. I’m very grateful for her influence on my future!

If I could have one super power, it would be…flight. I love traveling and I hate wasting time – seems like the best of both worlds.

My favorite thing about my job is…helping students in a time of need. I get joy from seeing them succeed.

My pet peeve is…chewing with your mouth open.

My favorite movie isThe Holiday with Kate Winslet.

What is your favorite book: This is an unfair line of questioning! I refuse to answer because I have too many. (For real though, I have read and reread Paulo Coehlo’s The Alchemist at different times in my life, and it always teaches me something new about myself. While I won’t call it my favorite, it is one of the only books that I’ve read multiple times.)

My favorite inspirational movie isRemember the Titans. Left side! Strong side!

My favorite TV show is…Dateline. It’s just so soothing. And darn near everything on HGTV.

The best concert I’ve ever seen was…B.B. King’s 80th birthday concert at the House of Blues.

My favorite musical is…The Sound of Music. I have fond memories of watching it with my grandmother when I was a little girl. I look forward to watching it every Christmas so I can feel her presence close to me again.

One of my favorite teaching memories is…when one of my “school daughters” realized that she wanted to become a teacher. I have a special bond with this young woman, and it has been inspiring to watch her grow in our shared profession.
