My name is Joe Hogan, and I am a learning consultant serving the Woodstown-Pilesgrove Regional School District. I primarily work with the middle and high school students, and I am the case manager for students in grades 6-9. I also work with students who may be out of district. I am honored to be a part of the Woodstown-Pilesgrove Regional School District. Prior to joining the Child Study Team, I was the seventh grade ELA teacher at Woodstown Middle School. Before this, I taught in Camden City and in a private school in Philadelphia. I received my Bachelor's Degree from Holy Family University in Humanities with a focus in English and Philosophy. I then earned my Master of Science Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Drexel University, and my Master of Education Degree in School Leadership from Wilimington University. After this, I earned my post-master's certificate in Learning Disabilities from Rowan University. I look forward to working together with students, parents, and teachers to help each child reach his or her fullest potential!

What is an LDT/C?
As a Learning Consultant, I use my previous experience as a teacher to observe and evaluate students from an educational perspective. A student that is evaluated by the CST often times has an Educational Assessment conducted by the Learning Consultant. The evaluation investigates the student’s educational history, supports in place and the effectiveness of these supports, interviews teachers, observes the student in the classroom setting, and conducts standardized assessments. In addition, I analyze the information gained to determine learning strengths and weaknesses that may impact a student’s ability to progress in school. How the student compares academically with same age peers and examining gaps in skill acquisition are important components in determining if a student requires an IEP. I also develop and provide a written report (Learning Evaluation Report) and make recommendations for effective interventions, strategies, and modifications to staff and to family to promote learning.
