Mrs. Christin Walsh's Educational Background
Educational Background:After graduating from Saint Rose High School in Belmar, New Jersey, I attended William Paterson University. There I pursued a degree in Special Education and Elementary Education. Upon graduation, I was hired as a resource room teacher for a K-8 school in Riverdale, NJ where I had completed my student teaching. From there, I moved on to become a Special Education Teacher in Hillsdale, NJ. While teaching in Hillsdale full-time, I decided to return to school for my Masters Degree in Reading with a Reading Specialist Certification at William Paterson University.A few years ago, I completed an Educational Leadership program at William Paterson University. Participating in the program allowed me to obtain my Supervisor Certificate as well as my Principal Certificate. Last year, I began to study Orton-Gillingham through the University of San Diego. The program has been a wonderful experience and has broadened my knowledge of multi-sensory literacy techniques. Last year, I began my journey with learning about how to implement Mindfulness in the classroom. After completing courses for educators on mindfulschools.org, I began working with a group of teachers to bring mindfulness to the students at MES. This year embarks upon my 15th year in public education. I am so happy to be here in Manasquan!
