    Hello parents! Welcome to the 2020-21 school year.  As we embark on this journey together, let's remember to take it slow and remember we all have a common goal.  The goal to stay healthy, safe and do the best we all can to help your child have a meaniful, productive year!
     
    I am one of the learning support teachers at Candlebrook Elementary. My classroom is  Room 141, located in the third and fourth grade wing of the school. I would like to tell you a little about myself. I am married with three children and live in Hatboro, Pennsylvania. This year begins my 27th year of teaching children with special needs, 18 of those years here in Upper Merion. I have a triple undergraduate certification in Early Childhood, Elementary and Special Education from Temple University. I also hold a Master's degree as a Reading Specialist from St. Joseph's University. I have a strong passion for teaching and working with children who face challenges, and I feel privileged to absolutely love my job. I try to make each day enjoyable, appreciate and value each child as the gift they are to the world. We have FUN while learning and I hope your child enjoys his/her educational journey at Candlebrook, even virtually!  
     
     
     
    Each year the special education program may look different because we design it around the needs of the children. During the first few weeks of the school year, I will be collecting data and assessing the needs of the students, even virtually.  I hope to be following the regular schedule by mid September. I will be posting this schedule soon!  This means providing direct instruction in either the Language Arts area and/or Math, pushing into classrooms to help adapt and modify the general education.  I will be happy to talk to you regarding your child's individual schedule.  

    Ms. Alexandra Bohen is also a  special education teacher, who is assigned to Candlebrook.  You should know who your child's case manager is for the year, whether it is Ms. Bohen or myself. You would contact your child's case manager if you have questions or issues in regards to your child's programming or IEP. There are also two instructional assistants working with Ms. Bohen and I. Their names are Ms. Hansell, Ms. Kimmeshue and Mr. Williams. 

    Please do not hesitate to contact me at any time with problems or concerns. Email is best, I usually check it at least three times a day; (cammazzalorso@umasd.org).  During school hours, you can reach me on my cell phone which I will be keeping close by, but it will be muted.  So I will check it frequently, if you have an immediate question or concern, feel free to use my cell, I just ask that you don't abuse it and respect my time.  (215) 518 4409
