Dorothy L. Bullock School Names Cheryl Tartaglione as Teacher of the Year!

Congratulations to Cheryl Tartaglione, Dorothy L. Bullock School’s Teacher of the Year! Tartaglione teaches basic skills to first-graders. 

She started teaching 32 years ago and came to Glassboro as a full-time teacher in 2004. In addition to this year, Tartaglione won the Teacher of the Year award in our district in 2006 and in another district in 1999. In 1997, she received an award for Exemplary Practices in Inclusive Education.

She earned her bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Rowan University. Her teaching certificates include Reading Specialist and Teacher of the Handicapped. She is also an Orton-Gilliam Certified Instructor.

Tartaglione uses her gift for teaching to help students and teachers alike. She plays a large role in organizing our district’s Annual Dyslexia Conference. Teachers from across the state come to the conference to learn new skills to help their students! She collaborates with others to offer parent seminars at Bullock. She also teaches Orton-Gilliam Classes to teachers, combining it with a tutoring program to help students.

Principal Richard Taibi notes, “Cheryl’s commitment to reach and motivate each of her students is an inspiration, and we are proud to count her among all teachers who rise to the occasion each day on behalf of their students. As we honor Cheryl, let’s not lose sight of what drives her: a fundamental commitment to her students’ success.”

She is shown above (second from the left) with Taibi (far left), Melanie Sweeney, supervisor of special services, and Dr. Silverstein, superintendent.

Tartaglione will be honored at a County Luncheon in April and at a Board of Education Meeting later in the school year.
