RESOURCE- Mrs.  Longa

Hello!  My name is Jolaine Longa and I am a Resource teacher at Troy Hills Elementary School.
I have been an educator in Parsippany for over 24 years and I am certified to teach both Special Education and Elementary Education.  I graduated from MSU with my degree in Elementary/Early Childhood Education.  Then went on to further my education at Jersey City State University and earned my certification in Special Education. 

As a child, growing up in a family of educators, I knew at a young age that teaching was my passion. In addition to having this calling, I always possessed a true love for dancing. I taught dance for many years prior to pursuing my career as an educator.   I frequently share my enthusiasm for dancing with students. Occasionally, they may even come home and share with you that they were dancing at school.

In addition to my rewarding career as an educator, I have an amazing family. I have been married for 20 years to my husband, Don, and I am a proud mother of two teenage children, AJ and Alexa.  I also have a dog who is a 5 year old Beagle mix who loves to spend most of his days chasing the chipmunks, squirrels and rabbits in the yard.

As a teacher, my goal is to instill a passion for learning within my students while providing them with an educational environment that is encouraging and positive.

Looking forward to an amazing school year filled with learning opportunities, smiles, and fun. 

RESOURCE- Mr. Toriello

My name is Troy Toriello and I teach resource/inclusion here at Troy Hills school. I began my career in 2000 after completing a masters program in special education through New Jersey City University. In addition to working with resource/inclusion students, I have also taught behavioral and multiple disability classes grades k-8. I come from a family of educators and have always thoroughly enjoyed working with children. Teaching is a privilege that I take very seriously. It is an honor to have the opportunity to help shape the minds of today’s youth each and everyday. Away from school I enjoy spending time with my family and close friends. My biggest pleasure in life is being a dad.  I have a son and daughter who I adore. I am very involved with coaching their sports teams and supporting all of their extra curricular activities. In the future, I would like to be an elementary school principal. I have a masters degree in educational leadership from Montclair State University.

RESOURCE- Miss  Visoskas

Hello! I am Danielle Visoskas and I am a co-teacher for grades 2 & 4. I currently co-teach second grade with Mrs. Moore for Language Arts and Math. Also, I am co-teaching fourth grade with Mrs. Piccirillo for Language Arts. This is my fourth year teaching at Troy Hills School, as well as my fourth year co-teaching with Mrs. Moore. I graduated from Centenary University with a degree in Elementary Education and a Certificate for Teacher of Students with Disabilities. I am currently in graduate school at Centenary University for Educational Leadership. I also have 30 hours of training through the Institute of Multisensory Education.

One of my favorite things about being a teacher is when students have an ‘aha’ moment and they are able to understand a skill that is being taught. I look forward to coming into school every day and seeing all of my students, having meaningful conversations with them, teaching them new skills, and being someone they can count on and talk to. 

Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my family, friends, and chocolate lab. I love to read, go on hikes, and watch sports.
