Ms. Simon - Library / Media
My Philosophy on Education

Reading is the foundation for all subject areas in school. In order to think critically and succeed in life, you need a strong education based on literacy.  In other words, “read to succeed.” Whether you attend college or become an entrepreneur, you need to be literate. Reading gives you knowledge of the world.   My philosophy is that each child can learn and that each student learns using his or her best learning style, whether it be visual, auditory or kinesthetic.           

My Educational Background    

I have been employed as an Educational Media Specialist for the past seven years in the East Orange School District.  Prior to being a media specialist, I taught High School Language Arts for 17 years in the New York City and Jersey City public schools. 

I received my Bachelors Degree in English and Communications from Queens College and my Masters Degree in Secondary Education from Hunter College, both in New York City. I continued my education at Montclair State University, where I obtained my Media Specialist certification.
