    Hello parents! Welcome to the 2023-24 school year.  As we embark on this journey together, I want to thank you for the opportunity to be an integeral part of your child/children's journey.
    I am one of the learning support teachers at Candlebrook Elementary. My classroom is  Room 129, 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 31th year of teaching children with special needs, 24 of those years here in Upper Merion. I have a triple undergraduate certificate 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 a gift they are to the world. We have FUN while learning and I hope your child enjoys his/her educational journey at Candlebrook!  
    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.  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 also conduct direct instruction in social skills as needed.  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 should contact your child's case manager if you have questions or issues in regards to your child's programming or IEP. There are also three instructional assistants working with Ms. Bohen and I. Their names are Ms. Hansell, Mrs. Dimedio and Mrs. Hardell

    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
