Welcome to Mrs. Squibb's ACES Website
A Little About Me
My name is Denise Squibb, and I am the ACES and Gifted & Talented teacher here at The Hill School. I have been teaching in the Swedesboro-Woolwich District since 2012 and have previously taught 3rd and 4th grade. I have an undergraduate degree from William Patterson University in English. I received my Masters Degree in Education from Fairleigh Dickinson University and began my teaching career teaching 5th and 6th grade at Guardian Angels Catholic School in Paulsboro, NJ. I have been a part of I&RS (Intervention and Referral Services) team since 2013.
Aside from teaching, I am married with two beautiful daughters-Emmy (3 years old) and Evelyn (1 and a 1/2).
I am very excited to be a part of the ACES/G&T team! Communication is key, and I am always avaliable if need be. I look forward to working with your child for a wonderful school year!
SOME INFORMATION ABOUT ACES:
As you may already know, the goal of ACES (Academci Coaches Enhancing Skills) is to use intervention strategies to enhance your child's academic abilities in a specfic skill. The programs I use in the small group/push in support setting are school approved curriculum that are not only geared to your child's academic needs, but are also aligned to the New Jersey State Standards.
SOME INFORMATION ABOUT G&T:
For the Gifted and Talented program, we will be focusing on STEAM and student centered learning projects revolving around our theme of Ecology. All projects and activities will be geared towards the students advanced abilities in a variety of subjects including Reading, Math, Science, and Social Studies as well as involving them to apply these skills to real world concepts and ideas. Please check out the Gifted and Talented page, as well as the Enrichment Newsletter Page for more information.
