Hello! My name is Sophia Santo and this is my first year teaching at Kirby's Mill. I am a recent graduate of The College of New Jersey's 5-year Master's Program in Special Education, where I earned my Bachelors in iSTEM (integrated Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) with a minor in Communication Disorders in 2017, and my Masters of Art in Teaching with a focus on students with complex disabilities in 2018. Over the time at TCNJ, I had the opportunity to observe and teach in multiple elementary and middle school classrooms. These unique teaching experiences, including my involvement as a live-in house mentor for college students with disabilities, instructing in a behavioral school setting, and participating in special education teaching opportunities abroad, have provided me with the confidence and skills necessary to be an effective teacher for your student.
I am humbled to have the opportunity to instruct such an extraordinary group of students in Medford Township Public Schools. It is my hope that my passion for teaching and commitment to your student's success will inspire your child to persevere through challenges, encourage growth, and support learning throughout the year!
