Mrs. Nicole DeRisi
My name is Mrs. Nicole DeRisi and I currently serve as a Lanugage Arts and Literacry Resource Teacher at Memorial Elementary School. This is my fourth year teaching in Montvale. I love teaching and I have a passion for multi-sensory learning. I also serve as the ClassDojo Mentor teacher for Memorial!
My philosophy of education is that there is not one path to facilitate learning, but many. As a special education teacher, I aim to constantly differentiate and evolve my instruction based on the needs to my class. I need to be aware of learning, motivation, behavior, and development theories embedded in the teaching pedagogy in order to relate to my students and push them to reach their full potential.
