Hello! My name is Abbi Anker, and I am so excited to be your child's special education teacher this year! In May of 2018 I graduated with my Master's Degree in Special Education from The College of New Jersey. In 2017, I graduated with my Bachelor's Degree in Sociology, also from The College of New Jersey.
I am a passionate special educator and an advocate for students with disabilities. Over the past six years I have had the opportunity to teach and observe in multiple elementary and preschool classrooms in the state of New Jersey. Last year, I completed my first year of teaching at Hopewell Elementary. I completed my student teaching at University Heights Elementary School in Hamilton, New Jersey, where I taught 2nd and 3rd grade special education and 5th grade general education. My unique range of experiences, including my involvement as a live-in house mentor for college students with disabilities and my unique teaching experiences abroad in Ghana, West Africa, have given me the skills and confidence necessary to be an effective teacher for your student.
I am so excited to begin my second year of teaching at Hopewell Elementary School! I am looking forward to getting to know your children and supporting them in reaching their highest potential.
