Desiree Ugarte » Welcome!!


Ms. D would love to welcome everyone to the 2021-2022 school year!
I am going to be the 8th Grade Resource Teacher for the school year. This will be my 7th year working in the North Bergen School District. I received my Bachelor's degree from Nyack College for Elementary Education K-6 in 2009. I then received my Master's degree in Special Education from Montclair State University in 2015. In June of 2020, I became a certified Orton Gillingham specialist through a program offered at Fairleigh Dickinson University.
I am looking forward to an amazing year full of growth and success! I am a firm believer that the success of a child is in the effort and support of the school, parent, and community. I also believe that with hard work, a positive attitude, and open communication between teachers/parents will result in the educational success for your child! Please do not hesitate to contact me if there is any question or concern in regards to your child.  
Please check back for any updates!
