B.A in Psychology Graduate-Level Teaching Elementary Education K-5 Teacher of Students with Disabilities Endorsement
Hello! My name is Ms. Sam! It’s going to be another great year full of new adventures and new discoveries. This will be my fourth year teaching at The Shore Center for Students with Autism. I have been working with children and teenagers with special needs since 2009. I started as a paraprofessional at Children's Center of Monmouth County for 4 years and then went to Hawkswood School, where I became a teacher there for 3 years. Coming to The Shore Center has been the best move I ever made!
I graduated with a B.A in Psychology from Rider University. I went back to Rider University to receive my certification in Elementary Education. I knew I wanted to teach students with special needs so I received my Teacher of Students with Disabilities Endorsement from Rutgers University!
