Alyssa Ciarrocchi is a thirty-three-year-old currently living in Hammonton, NJ. She studied at Rowan University and graduated in 2010 with a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education, a minor in Writing Arts, and a certification in Special Education and Reading. Upon graduation, Alyssa started working at Triton Regional High School. From 2010 to 2015, she taught Resource Room, 10th grade inclusion, and the Behavioral Room. During her time at Triton, she went back to St. Joseph’s University to obtain my Masters’ Degree. Ciarrocchi finished in 2014 and went back to Rowan University for her Learning Disabilities Teacher Consultant certification and graduated in 2015. Once certified as a Learning Consultant, Alyssa took a job in Camden and worked there until 2016. She found that she wanted to be back in the classroom and finished her teaching career at Clearview Regional High School in their Multiply Disabled Room.
During this time, Alyssa Ciarrocchi took a part time job at Brett DiNovi and Associates and fell in love with their approach to helping students. She has recently finished her Applied Behavior Analysis Certification at Capella University and will be sitting for her boards in the next few months to become a Board-Certified Behavior Analyst. Alyssa Ciarrocchi currently work with Brett DiNovi and Associates as a Registered Behavior Technician and enjoy working in home and in schools with children who have the classification of Autism. She truly could not imagine working in any other field as she enjoys working with learners, parents, and teachers and seeing the successful changes made every day.
I went into education because of my younger brother. He is the reason that I found a love for the field and his teachers are the reason why I believe that anything is possible.
The thing I love most about Applied Behavior Analysis, ABA, is helping others and seeing them become the best they can be. I love seeing students have their “aha” moment and it all come together for them.
Remote learning presents many challenges for all parties involved. But one of the greatest challenges many teachers are facing is how to stay connected with their students despite the physical distance.
Virtual learning is a relatively new phenomenon. While some schools and universities may have dabbled in it before, most were unprepared for a pandemic that would launch them into a full or even part-time remote learning situation.
There has been a lot of talk about what going back to school will look like amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. Given this unprecedented situation, it’s difficult to know which of the proposed solutions will be best.
