About Brittany

I am a certified elementary/middle school teacher specializing in social studies for grades 5-8. I also have a teacher of students with disabilities certification. I have worked in many school districts all over NJ and have experience with children ages 3-15.

A little about me:

It has always been my desire to work with children, helping them to grow and reach their full potential. This being said I have made it a priority to incorporate teaching into my career over the past 8 years. I currently work as Special Education teacher during the school year in grades 1-3.

I went to William Paterson University where I received a BA in Elementary Education. During that time I worked full time at Skylands Ice World as their party & event manager. This position allowed me to also direct the summer day camp there every summer. The camp runs for 10 weeks each year and cares for children ages 4-13 from 7am-6pm each day. During my junior year of college I also applied for and received my substitute teacher certificate and started substitute teaching in multiple public schools. I also participate in various children’s programs at my church, which include teaching a Kindergarten class and being the children’s choir director.

Philosophy of Education:

I believe education should build on the students’ interests and prior knowledge. It is important for children to think and be able to construct concepts and ideas for themselves. I understand that there are multiple intelligences, that children learn in different ways, and that lessons need to be structured so that all children can find something that interests and motivates them.
