About me

See you in class!
  • Dear Tenafly Community,

    My name is Meleiqe Canovic and I am so excited to be joining Smith Elementary School this year as a special education teacher! I graduated from William Paterson University with a degree in General and Special Education, History, and a minor in American Studies. This will be my 6th year teaching. I have previously taught a wide variety of grade levels and subject areas ranging from grades K-8. Teaching is a passion of mine. It is something I have always wanted to do in order to make a positive impact on the world. I believe that as a teacher, it is important to strive to make a difference in each of my students’ lives. One way that I do this is by cultivating positive teacher-student relationships and getting to know each one as an individual in order to incorporate different learning styles into every lesson. It is my goal to assist my students in reaching academic success. 

    I believe that the partnership between a parent and teacher is essential for student success! I communicate with parents regularly to discuss student progress, concerns, and to update parents on current and upcoming assessments and long term projects. I am available for extra help upon request. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email me at mcanovic@tenafly.k12.nj.us.  I respond to emails within 24 hours. 

     

    I look forward to a great school year!

    Kind regards,

    Mrs. Canovic
