My name is Lisa M. Valenti and I am a Social Worker on the Child Study Team at the Joseph M. Ferraina Early Childhood Learning Center (JMFECLC). I served in this capacity at the Long Branch Middle School for 14 years prior to moving to JMFECLC. My school career began at Lafayette College in Easton, Pennsylvania, where I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology. After graduation, I became a substitute teacher for a year in the Howell Township Public School District prior to returning to school at the University of Pennsylvania to obtain a Master's Degree in Social Work. I furthered my educational career at Georgian Court University, where I earned a Master's Degree in Educational Administration and Leadership.
In my free time, I enjoy participating in and watching all sports, especially football, baseball, and swimming. I am a lifelong fan of the New York Giants and Yankees. Having been a swimmer my entire life, I now enjoy participating in the sport as a head coach. For the past 20 years, I have been the Head Coach of the Candlewood Swim Team in Howell. During the summer months, I also spend my time teaching swimming lessons to children and adults.
As a School Social Worker on the Child Study Team at the Joseph M. Ferraina Early Childhood Learning Center, my role includes determining eligibility for Special Education, monitoring students' academic, behavioral, and emotional/social needs, and providing case management responsibilities. I can be reached at JMFECLC at (732) 571-4150, extension 44600.
