I had Lilly Montalbano for 5th and 6th grades at Manasquan Elementary School from 1977-78. To this day, she remains my favorite teacher throughout my entire education (including college and law school). She was completely dedicated and caring and stands out above all the rest. A truly gifted teacher and a genuinely nice person. She truly made a difference in her students' lives. I'm very grateful to have had "Ms. Montalbano" as my teacher for not only one but for two years.

I don't have good memories of Ms. Montalbano at all. I had her for 5th grade at Otsego. She played favorites, mis-pronounced "consonants" as "constanants", didn't like non-white students, and intentionally humiliated a little boy in front of the whole class, claiming she was trying to "help" him. But she knew how to kiss the principal's ass and be fake-nice as needed.
