M.A.Ed., Columbia University Teacher’s College
CDA Coordinator, Special Needs Coordinator, Quality Enhancement Specialist
Prior to working at CCRR for 23 years I was the teacher/director of Ramapo Community Nursery School, a parent cooperative nursery school in Rockland County, where parents participated in the classroom on a weekly basis. I have enjoyed teaching CDA classes for over 20 years for CCRR as well as at Rockland Community College. I have been affiliated with CCRR since 1989 in a variety of positions and love working with this dedicated group of professionals.
Ellen’s philosophy: I tend to be optimistic and try to find the best in people. As I would tell my daughters: try to do your best, which is all we can expect from ourselves and others.
