WelcomeHello, my name is Mrs. Haas. It's exciting to be a Resource Room and In-Class Support Teacher at Wilson School! I am a graduate of William Paterson University, where I received my BA in communications. I earned my masters degree at Montclair State University. Additionally, I hold three New Jersey teaching certifications: Elementary Education, Special Education, and Learning Disabilities Teacher Consultant. I taught second grade before I had my family.I believe children learn best in an environment where they are supported, encouraged, and free to express themselves. Building self-esteem is a crucial component in my educational philosophy. Open lines of communication are essential to a successful school year. Please feel free to contact me with any of your concerns (firstname.lastname@example.org).Although teaching is my passion, I enjoy many other activities in my free time. On the weekends, I like to go Geo Caching with my family. Also, I love to spend time reading and taking long walks with my dog Jilly.
