BAYONNE, NJ - While her classroom at Henry E. Harris has been empty for several weeks as a result of the COVID-19, longtime Pre-K teacher Missy Agresta has been hard at work making masks for frontline workers including members of the Bayonne Police Department, Bayonne Fire Department, and healthcare workers at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital.
Describing her a “wonderful teacher” as well as a “beautiful soul,” resident Antoinette Rosario whose own high school children “were very lucky to have Mrs. Agresta as their teacher” at the beginning of their educational journey, suggested that the beloved educator, as well as local business owner, deserves to be recognized for her roles as a “pivotal asset to the Bayonne Board of Education and our community.”
“She's respected, helpful, kind, and a bright light in the future of many children. Rosario said. “I thank her for all she's done for my own children and for her big heart.”
