Welcome to the 202o-2021 School Year!

Mrs. Pira (formerly Ms. Rokoszak) is thrilled to be returning to Woodside Avenue School. She graduated from the University of Connecticut in 2012 where she majored in Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences and Psychology. Mrs. Pira then earned her dual certification in Elementary and Special Education in 2014 as well as her Master's degree in Teaching from William Paterson University in 2018. 

Mrs. Pira promises to foster a learning environment where students feel safe, supported, confident, and proud of their work. She believes that every child has the ability to succeed, and she intends to provide students numerous opportunities to show their true potential. Mrs. Pira is hopeful that her students will learn to apply strategies to any challenges they may encounter in their future academic experiences. 

For the past three years, Mrs. Pira has been a Special Education Teacher, providing multi-sensory instruction in both the resource room and in-class support settings for grades K-5. She is looking forward to joining the 5th grade team as a homeroom teacher and collaborating with Mrs. Corage. 

In addition to teaching, Mrs. Pira enjoys traveling, cooking, spending time with family and friends, and running along the waterfront in Hoboken, where she resides with her husband. 

Please feel free to e-mail Mrs. Pira with any questions, comments, or concerns as the year progresses.
