Mrs. Ifat Sade
Welcome and thanks for visiting my homepage! I am very excited to continue working with the wonderful children, families, and staff in Manville. This year is my 7th year working at the Manville School District as a School Psychologist. The first year, I was splitting my time between High School and ABIS, and for the past four years, I have been working at Weston Elementary school.
I have been working in the field of education for the past 20 years. I started my journey working in private day schools as a foreign language teacher and a curriculum coordinator. After more than 15 years there, I made the transition to public school. Teaching kids a second language represented a critical incident in my professional life. I have become more intrigued by the human mind and the inner world of children, how their experiences, perceptions, culture, behaviors, social and emotional states influence their learning. I was adamant about learning more and so I pursued my master's in educational psychology. The coursework and practicum in my graduate studies have strengthened my passion and commitment to helping children flourish and reach their full potential in school. I have continued to pursue the School Psychologist certificate from New Jersey State. As a school psychologist, my reward is to see your child and my students reaching their goals and dreams.
