Mrs. Colleen McKnight, MA, LDT/C
Welcome to the Child Study Team Department. I am a certified Learning Disabilities Teacher/Consultant serving Bunker Hill, Chestnut Ridge, and Orchard Valley Middle Schools.
Personal background and interests: I grew up locally in Pitman, NJ where I attended school and graduated from Pitman High. I love to seek new adventures through travel, though the beach is my favorite place to be! During my free time, I enjoy reading, cooking, spending time with family, and finding ways to stay active.
Professional information and background: Following high school graduation, I attended Towson University in Maryland where I earned a Bachelors Degree in Special Education and Elementary Education. I have teaching certifications as an Elementary School Teacher and a Teacher of Students with Disabilities. While earning my degree, I spent summers working at the Bankbridge Development Center in the Gloucester County Special Services School District. Upon graduating, I began teaching special education in the Camden City Public School District. While doing so, I earned my Masters Degree from Rowan University in Learning Disabilities. I then became a certified Learning Disabilities Teacher/Consultant and began employment with the Child Study Team in the Swedesboro-Woolwich Public School District. While working in this capacity I returned for post-Masters credits at Wilmington University in Delaware. Following the completion of courses, I earned a Supervisors Certification in NJ.
I love getting to know our students and families and working together with you as part of the multidisciplinary and collaborative iEP team!
