Miss Melanie Pardun
Hello and welcome!
I am the occupational therapist working in Private Nicholas Minue, Nathan Hale, Carteret Middle, and Carteret High school. I started my professional journey at Monmouth University, earning a Bachelor of Science degree in health studies. I continued on to New York University and earned a Master of Occupational Therapy degree. I am licensed in the state of New Jersey and a member of the American Occupational Therapy Association. My OT career started in pediatric outpatient therapy, where I was able to put the skills learned in the classroom into action! I soon added early intervention into the mix and then school-based occupational therapy.
I am here to assist my students be their best selves, to be successful, and to promote functionality in their academic setting. Some areas that I may address with the student, teachers, school staff and family are fine motor, visual motor/perceptual, sensorimotor, sensory processing, and self-help skills-- all while having fun!!
I cannot wait to continue this journey and work with our students and your family!
