Some information about me.

My name is Debbie Donio and I am your child’s In-class support teacher in Mrs. Carmody’s kindergarten classroom. Let me tell you a little about myself. I am a certified Special Education Teacher and Elementary Education Teacher in the State of New Jersey.  I earned an Orton Gillingham trained teacher certificate through Fairleigh Dickenson University and I earned a Structured Literacy Dyslexia Specialist certificate through The Center for Effective Reading Instruction. I have been working in the Hamilton Township School District for 19 years.  My primary placement has been in the Learning Resource Center, but I have also been an In-Class Support Teacher in both Kindergarten and First Grade. 

I live in the South Jersey area with my husband, son and our dog Moose. Moose sounds like a big dog, but he is really a little beagle with a big voice. I enjoy bike riding, swimming, walking Moose in our neighborhood, going to the beach and being outside. My newest passion is making different homemade breads and pasta. Most of all, I love to cook for my family and friends.

At Home

Research tells us that reading every night will greatly improve your child’s reading abilities. I would like to suggest making it a habit to read with your child at least 10-15 minutes each night.  The extra practice at home will give your child the opportunity to see familiar words multiple times in print so they can recognize words quicker in different contexts.

Please know that I am always available to you. Should you have any questions, comments, or concerns, you can reach me at our Class Dojo class page,, or 609-625-6600 ext. 3037. 

I look forward to a fun and exciting school year with your child.
