"The future of the world is in my classroom today."

I am so thrilled to be part of City Hill Middle School and the Naugatuck community. This is my 12th year teaching in the Naugatuck school district. I started in Naugatuck in 2005 while I completed my one year internship at NHS. I loved the community so much, that I was lucky enough to stay at NHS to complete my student teaching experience. Once completed, I was hired at Hillside Middle School (now Hillside Intermediate) as a reading assistant and there fell in love with middle school! That fall, I was lucky enough to begin teaching in the English Language Arts department with some of the most inspiring teachers. During my time at the middle schools, I headed the Talent Show for several years and started a Drama Club program at CHMS for the 2013-2014 school year. We put on a performance of Alice @ Wonderland in 2014. 


My husband and I welcomed our second son, Jack Carmen Tyminski last fall, November 8, 2017. Our oldest son Noah (4) loves nothing more than being a big brother. There has been no greater gift to me than being able to be a mother to these two amazing little boys.
