Our special education teachers work cooperatively with other special education staff, related service providers, and general education staff. They are skilled at working collaboratively in planning and providing instructional programs that benefit students with special needs. Many of our special education teachers have been trained in specific reading programs that are research based and have proven to be highly effective in meeting the educational needs of students with disabilities. In order to stay current in best practices regarding special education programs and instruction, our teachers consistently attend workshops and in-services, while some are enrolled in graduate and post graduate programs. All of our district special education teachers hold the New Jersey standard teaching certificate “Teacher of the Handicapped” and/or “Teacher of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing”.
