Dear Shoreham Wading River Families:

I am so grateful and excited for the opportunity to serve the Shoreham-Wading River students, faculty, and community as the new Director of Special Education and Pupil Personnel Services.  By means of introduction, my career path here to the Shoreham-Wading River School District has included 10 years as an elementary, middle school, and high school Special Education teacher in addition to 14 years as a Special Education Administrator.

The Office of Special Education and Pupil Personnel Services encompasses a wide array of programs, committees, and staff, including the Committee on Special Education, Committee on Preschool Education, 504 Committee, registration, home instruction, mental health, social-emotional learning, students in temporary housing, DASA, special education programs and teachers, teaching assistants, aides, speech/language therapists, school psychologists, and our social workers.  

The Special Education and Pupil Personnel Services Office is proud to educate children with a variety of interests and abilities within our school programs.  I am committed to working with the school community in support of the well-being of all of our students.  The work that has already been done here is stellar and I look forward to advancing these efforts to best meet the social and emotional learning needs and objectives of our students and families. 

Please feel free to contact me at any time.  I am eager to immerse myself in the Shoreham-Wading River community and I welcome all opportunities to communicate with all of you.
