Andrea lived her life to the fullest. She was a devoted wife, mother, and daughter. Her passion was teaching. She was employed by the West Windsor-Plainsboro School District as a Special Education Teacher. Prior to that, she was employed by the West Caldwell School District. Andrea loved her students as if they were her own. They would always tell her how much they loved and appreciated her infectious laugh and her unique way of understanding each and every one of them.
She was the best friend and daughter anyone could ever ask for and the most devoted wife and mother to her husband, Joey, and her one and only daughter, Ellie Ann.
