Candy Mulligan is an associate of The Educator Collaborative and currently serves as the K-4 Supervisor of English Language Arts in the Bridgewater-Raritan Regional School District in Somerset County, New Jersey. In her role, she supports teachers across seven primary schools in their efforts to build a strong literacy foundation for the district’s youngest readers and writers. Candy’s passion is exploring new and innovative ways to engage teachers in professional learning. She stands by her conviction that the most important thing students and teachers have in common is that they both need to be trusted to take ownership over their own learning. Although she has served in a supervisory role for the past 11 years, Candy’s work with teachers is grounded by 13 years of her own experiences teaching students in 6th, 5th, 2nd and 1st grades.
Meredith Alvarez is a first grade teacher at Milltown Primary School in Bridgewater, New Jersey. She has just begun her 6th year teaching. She holds a Master’s Degree in Elementary Education and an endorsement in Special Education from Rutgers University. She is a science coordinator for her school and is always looking for new and engaging ways to integrate language arts into science instruction. She is passionate about building student relationships and having all of her students see themselves represented in the classroom. While not teaching, she enjoys traveling to new places, yoga, and exploring the outdoors.
