Mrs. Ali

Most of you know me as Mrs.Ali, but for the new students/families to this class let me introduce myself.  This is my 8th year of teaching in Columbus Elementary school. I graduated from Rutgers University in May 2012 with a Master’s Degree in special education. I have a dual teaching certification in general education and special education. I recently completed an online program towards my 2nd Master’s Degree as a Reading Specialist.


      The opportunity to teach your child is an honor and the most important responsibility I have this year. I want to assure you that your child will enter a classroom where respect, responsibility, and acceptance are values that will be instilled on a day to day basis. I will make sure that we work together as a team to make sure your child can achieve success and I am hoping to have your full support to make this possible.
