Dr. Corinne Sannino
Dr. Corinne Sannino currently serves as the Principal, Data and Assessment Testing Coordinator, and Director of Curriculum.
Education and Studies: Dr. Sannino obtained her Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education (K-8) and Art in 2005 and a Master of Arts degree in School Administration in 2012, both from Rowan University, and is certified as both a principal and supervisor. Dr. Sannino’s true passion lies in teaching teachers how to support at-risk students, particularly in reading. This passion inspired her doctoral research and dissertation titled, Helping Children Overcome Reading Difficulties Using Response to Intervention, earning her Educational Doctorate in Educational Leadership from Rowan University in 2018.
Dr. Sannino completed the New Jersey School Safety Specialist (SSS) Certification Training program and has been designated as South Harrison’s School Safety Specialist, which includes serving as the district’s liaison with local law enforcement and supervising all matters related to school safety and security.
Experience and Accomplishments: Dr. Sannino spent the bulk of her teaching career as a kindergarten teacher, serving as grade level chair, along with other various elementary experiences and leadership roles. Prior to coming to South Harrison, she had the honor of working at Kingsway Regional Middle School as an assistant principal and oversaw students in 7th and 8th grade. She was instrumental in launching their Renaissance Program and the Parent Achievement and Community Committee (PACC), which have continued to flourish after her departure.
As the Principal at South Harrison, Dr. Sannino is particularly proud of two large initiatives that she has implemented including the school’s Response to Intervention (RTI) Program and creation of STEAM programs. First, South Harrison’s RTI program offers over fourteen enrichment cycles, Gifted and Talented Program, and high-quality, research-based intervention services for students who struggle with the regular curriculum. In addition, Dr. Sannino has made integration of technology a top priority. A few highlights include the creation of a new gifted and talented program for grades K-2, introducing the concept of coding using robots and the addition of two new coding enrichment courses for grades 1-6. Her most recent accomplishment includes launching the new Media/Technology special area courses for grades K-3 introducing our learners to biomedical science, engineering, and computer science.
