Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year!!!



Dear Noecker families,




My name is Mrs. Childs and I will be Mrs. Maikisch and Mrs. Lavorgna’s co-teacher in class 6T's reading and math class, Mrs. Melillo's co-teacher in her 3rd grade math class and I will also be teaching a small group of students from Ms. Buccelli's and Ms. Safir's math class. Having two certified teachers teaching together has many benefits such as increase adult attention to students and an increase opportunity to differentiate for student needs.




I want to introduce myself because I am new to Roseland School District and to the state of New Jersey. I am originally from New York and have 4 years teaching experience at Merrick Academy Charter School in Queens, NY and 4 years teaching experience for NYC department of education at PS 82Q. Most my experience has been in special education and co-teaching. I am beyond excited to begin this new journey at the Noecker School!!




As we all know partnership with teachers and parents play a vital role in education. To begin partnership with your family, I would like to open communication with my email. If you have any questions about your child’s education, IEP’s, co-teaching and anything that relates to your child, please feel free to email me and I will get back to you by the end of the day.




Hope to see you all at back to school night!




Best Regards,


Mrs. Childs
