Laurie Paolillo

• College(s) and degrees(s):
BA – Glassboro State College – Teacher of the Handicapped

• Work experience:
My first job ever was at Strawbridges in Echelon. I substituted for a year after college and then came to Woodbury in 1976. I have 15 years of volunteer experience in Wildlife Rehabilitation, too.

• Favorite books
o fiction: The Sphinx by Robin Cook. I love mystery/adventure stories and this one made me remember my own trip to Egypt in 1979. I have re-read it many times.
o nonfiction: The Bible,

• Favorite television show:
NCIS (Mark Harmon is so easy on the eyes!)

• Last movie I loved:
Finding Nemo

• Music CD that I have almost worn out from repeated playing:
Wow, there are just too many. That’s records, tapes, cassettes, and CDs that are worn out!

• Person (living or not) that I’d like to have lunch with and why:
I would love to have lunch with Jesus. All the questions I have would make it a long lunch!

• Visiting this place makes me peaceful:
The woods, anytime!

• One item on my “to do” list that I can’t seem to get to:
Organize my home. It’s a never ending battle.

• Favorite animal (domestic or wild):
The always wonderful DOG!

• Favorite sports team:

The Yankees, of course!

• Destination of my fantasy vacation trip:

• Details about the teacher I will never forget who inspired me to enter the profession:
My two older cousins were/are Montessori teachers in New York and I would visit their school and work with the kids. They were very encouraging and felt I was a natural teacher.
