Christine Mongelli has been a special education teacher at South River Elementary School for the past seven years. She is a life-long resident of South River and has been giving back to the community for many years. She has been an active member in the athletic department, from volunteering to coaching sports including basketball, soccer, and track.
Christine was one of the first teachers to embrace our mission to complete an application for an SRFEE Mini-grant which she received for her special-education students. She then encouraged other teachers to apply as well. She used the grant for a community based instruction trip for her students. Last year, she played an important role in promoting our dinner dance to the rest of the staff. The result was an entire table of teachers were able to be recognized and thanked for their dedication and service.
This year, she volunteered and recruited others to participate in our first-ever Harlem Wizards fundraiser to help us promote and achieve our mission for the South River School District. Christine Mongelli is excited to give back to the community she was raised in and will always be a RAM!
