Mrs. Patricia Drimones
My name is Pat Drimones, and I am the Supervisor of Special Services and the School Social Worker. I have worked for the Ridgefield Public Schools for 25 years and began as the school social worker on the Child Study Team. In 2008 I became the Child Study Team Chairperson and moved on to become Supervisor of Special Services. I hold a Master's Degree from Kean University in Social Work and maintain certifications in Teacher of the Handicap, Nursery School and Supervision.
I believe that all students should be educated in a school community where everyone belongs and is accepted and supported by his or her peers. Special services is dedicated to providing a continuum of programs that will enable students to learn the strategies and skills necessary to live a productive life.
