Julia Albretsen, who has taught at Brookdale Avenue School and H.B. Whitehorne Middle School, has been named the new supervisor of humanities for the Verona Public Schools. Superintendent Dr. Rui Dionisio made the announcement in an email to parents on Monday night. Albretsen succeeds Steven Schels, who left Verona this summer to teach social studies at Wallkill Valley Regional High School.

Albretsen holds a bachelor’s degree in elementary education and English from The College of New Jersey (TCNJ). She earned a master’s in educational leadership from Montclair State University. While teaching at Brookdale, she studied at Columbia Teacher’s College Reading and Writing Workshop Project summer institutes and obtained certification as an Orton-Gillingham multi-sensory reading teacher.

Dionisio’s email says that Albretsen has served on various committees to improve curriculum and instruction in Verona, including the Curriculum Council, District Evaluation Advisory Committee, and Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Committee. She also participated in the Future Ready Schools team and Strategic Planning Sub-Committee on Professional Development. Beyond the school, Albretsen, a Verona resident, has served on the Verona Public Library’s Diversity Task Force.
