Welcome to Ms. Meluso's Class Page!A little about me:
For eight years I worked as middle school educator in my hometown of Jersey City, NJ. While in Jersey City, I worked as a Social Studies teacher for six years followed by two years as a Language Arts teacher in the Special Education department. Throughout my career I have worked with students at the middle school level. During my first year at TMS, I served as the Title I Reading Specialist for the 6th Grade Literacy classes. I had the fortunate experience to work alongside Mrs. Meehan, Mrs. Sleece (formerly Ms. Giuntini), Ms. Kinoian, and Mrs. Trombetta in their literacy classrooms. This year will be my second year working within the Special Education department in which I provide in-class support to Mrs. Kagy (Science), Ms. Katz (Social Studies), Ms. Kinoian (Language Arts) on the 6 White Team and Ms. Preolo (Social Studies) on the 6 Navy Team. I will also be teaching one section of 7th Grade Language Arts.
I received my Bachelor's Degree from Fordham University (Lincoln Center) in History as well as completed a program in their Graduate School of Education in order to receive certification in Elementary Education. Shortly thereafter, I received my Master's Degree from New York University with a concentration in Literacy Education. Most recently, I completed a certification program in Special Education through New Jersey City University.
I look forward to continued collaboration with my colleagues, as well as parents, in order to ensure a wonderful year for all of our incoming students!
