Meet Mrs. DeYoung
I am thrilled to begin my 30th year as a teacher in the wonderful and caring Woodcliff Lake community. I taught Kindergarten and Grade 1 during most of those years, and I am now happily enjoying the challenges of working with students as a Reading Teacher. Prior to teaching in Woodcliff Lake, I taught various grades from Kindergarten through Grade 7 for nine years in other communities.
I am excited to work with your child this year and help your child to strengthen his/her reading and spelling skills. My Reading Support program is designed to help students by supporting the reading comprehension instruction and/or word study instruction in their classrooms. Ongoing assessments during the year will help me to match my intervention to your child's specific academic needs and also will help determine the need to continue, modify, or terminate your child's services. I am confident that by working as a team with you and your child's classroom teacher, we will help your child to build his/her reading skills and have a successful school year. I hope you enjoy this website as a way to stay in touch and enhance school and home communication. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns that you have.
