Mrs. Higgins

WAS Instructional Coach

Collaborative Support & Intervention Math & Language Arts Teacher


Welcome to the 22-23 school year! I am so excited to be back at Woodside Avenue School as the building instructional coach and CSI teacher. I'm looking for working with our students to deepen their love of learning.

Background: Mrs. Higgins holds a Masters of Science in Elementary Education and Literacy from Long Island University as well as an undergraduate degree in Business and Marketing from Dominican College. She also recently completed for Educational Specialist Degree in Administration K-12. She currently holds certification in elementary education, supervision, and administration. In her free time, Mrs. Higgins enjoys spending time with her family, reading, painting, and outdoor activities. Mrs. Higgins has been teaching in the Franklin Lakes School district since 2008.

Educational Philosophy:

To create a safe, nurturing environment; where rules and procedures are carefully implemented to ensure an ideal learning environment.

Each and every student will be given the opportunity to question, construct, and make meaning.

Align curriculum and instruction to meet the New Jersey State Learning Standards.

Create collaborative partnerships with students, parents, and colleagues.

Have instruction driven by daily forms of authentic assessment both formal and informal.
