Mrs. Stacey Kodack-Ritchie
Hello Shore Center Families and Youths,
I am so excited to be joining The Shore Center 2022-2023 school year and for my third year here as a school-based BCBA. I am split part-time between The Shore Center and Regional Achievement Academy through Monmouth Ocean Educational Services Commission. (Hours and days listed below)
My name is Stacey Kodack-Ritchie M.S., BCBA. I hold Undergraduate degrees in Elementary Education and Special Education from Temple University. After graduating, I went on to spend 6 years teaching in a self-contained classroom in an out of district setting for students with autism and multiple disabilities. During this time, I began attending Ball State University where I obtained my Master’s in Applied Behavior Analysis. I went on to spend 5 years teaching autism and multiple disabilities classrooms for 15-21 year olds in an in-district setting. During this time, I also served the role of Structured Learning Experience (SLE) coordinator, placing students in simulated work training environments within the community. Most recently, I have served as the BCBA in an alternative school setting for students with multiple disabilities and psychiatric disorders, before joining The Shore Center and Regional Achievement Academy.
When I am not at school, I enjoy running a business with my husband, ZR Fit and Wellness, that focuses on adaptive and inclusive fitness and wellness. Our program is run out of a fantastic gym in Shrewsbury, Elite Sports Training (EST.) We love training with our athletes almost every day of the week. Personally, I enjoy sitting on the Health, Sports, and Fitness special interest group through the BACB. My family and I also love being outside, hiking, snowboarding, and spending time at home with our two cats, our snake, and our fish.
