Meet the Director
Below is Mrs. DeVito's bio. In forthcoming weeks this will be replaced with her newsletter.
Mrs. Carrieann (Malanga) DeVito joined the Secaucus School District in April 2018 as the Director of Special Services.
Mrs. DeVito began her career as both a general and special educator before joining the child study team as a learning consultant. During her tenure as a learning consultant, Mrs. DeVito earned a scholarship to obtain her Orton Gillingham teacher certification through Fairleigh Dickinson University. She was an active member of the I & R S Committees and sought to help struggling readers in both the general and special education settings.
Her path in school leadership began in Haworth where she was the Supervisor of Special Education. During that time, Mrs. DeVito was an active member of the HEPAC (Haworth Parent Advisory Committee). She was also responsible for bringing an Orton-Gillingham Satellite Center to Haworth in order to help teachers earn certification in the program without traveling to the campus.
Mrs. DeVito earned her BA from Caldwell University in 1997 and her MA in 2005 from Montclair State University. She returned to Caldwell University in 2010 in order to earn her certifications in administration. In addition to her Orton-Gilligham Teacher Certification, Mrs. DeVito has also earned her Dyslexia Specialist Certification at Fairleigh Dickinson University.
Mrs. DeVito is excited to be a part of the Secaucus Community and looks forward to helping all students succeed.
