Supervisor of Special Services - Kathleen Welsh


           The 2020-21 school year begins my fifth year at Blairstown Elementary School.  I count myself very fortunate to work in such a wonderful community and school.  As the Supervisor of Special Services, I work closely with the teachers, Child Study Team, parents and students to make this a successful school experience.  This new school year brings growth and change to our programs as we work to meet the needs of the children we serve.


            Not only do I bring with me a love of education and children, but also over 26 years of experience both in the classroom, as a special education teacher and as a Learning Disabilities Teacher/Consultant.  Having worked in all areas of education from preschool to college, I am aware of transitions, trends, and well proven methods for working with children with special needs.


            On a personal note, I am wife and mother to three great teenagers.  My family and I live in Hackettstown with our dog, Milo.  Additionally, I am active in my community at home through a variety of community and church activities.


            I am very much looking forward to the adventure this school year brings. If you have any questions about our special education programs or the referral process, please reach out to me.  My phone number is 908-362-6111 ext. 109, or you can reach me by email at
