Hello Avon Families!  

         My name is Miss Bellini.

         I am so excited to be the new Reading Specialist at Avon.  

         I grew up in Hunterdon County with my mom, dad, and two sisters.  I graduated from Towson University with a degree in Elementary and Special Education.  After graduation, I taught for a year in Morris Plains and then decided to move abroad!  For two years I lived in Casablanca, Morocco teaching at an International American Academy.  After returning to the states, I taught third grade for a year in Bridgewater and then came here to Avon.  For the last four years, I've taught second grade here at Avon. 

        I earned my Master of Science in Education Literacy from Monmouth University in 2021.  While completing the Literacy MSEd program, I had the opportunity to step out of the general education classroom setting and spend time identifying and implementing reading and writing strategies in a small group environment.  This summer I participated in Just Word and Leveled Literacy Instruction professional developments.  I also completed trainings in Orton Gillingham Level 1 and Level 2.

         When I'm not in the classroom, I love spending time with family and friends, traveling, hiking, and reading a good book outside.  

         I look forward to spending the 2122 school year with you!
