•  My name is Nicole Gerardi and I have been teaching in Perth Amboy since 2006. My students call me Mrs. Nicole.  I am a collaborative consultant at Ignacio Cruz.  My day consists of  working within several classrooms, making sure all students are academically and socially successful, whether they have a disability or not.  I assist the general education teacher by modifying materials, giving various strategies and occasionally working directly with a student. I love working with kids and my goal is to have an impacted their future .
