Prior to Pompton Lakes, I worked at the Wood-Ridge school district where I served as a school psychologist and case manager for students ranging from preschool-12th grade. I obtained my Master’s degree and state certification from Montclair State University, and I am currently working towards my Psy. D. at Fairleigh Dickinson University. I am honored to work with the students, families, and staff of the Pompton Lakes school district and look forward to a fantastic school year!

Prior to working here as a Learning Disability Teacher –Consultant, I worked in Englewood as an LDT-C in an elementary school. Over the past twenty years, I have also worked in three other districts teaching general education and special education in grades three through seven. The universities I have attended in order to receive my Teacher of the Handicapped, Elementary Education Teacher and Learning Disabilities Teacher-Consultant certifications are Florida State University and William Paterson University. I’m looking forward to my twenty first second year in education making a difference in the lives of our students.
Lisa Bracamonte, School Psychologist973 835-7100, #3 for Special ServicesFor those of you new to me, my role on the Child Study Team is that of Case Manager and School Psychologist. I began my career as a graduate of Duquesne University, with a major in both Elementary and Secondary English education followed by 16 years of teaching experience. I obtained my Masters in Education and State Licensure after completing the graduate program at Montclair State University, currently working on my doctorate and have had the pleasure of serving for 12 years as a School Psychologist in Pompton Lakes. Last, but certainly not least, I have over 21 years experience as the mother of two girls, so I do know some of what you’re going through. It is my hope that these experiences will enable me to facilitate your child’s program and continue to enable his/her success.
