• Hello! My name is Mrs. Vesonder. I am entering my tenth year teaching but my first year in the Hauppauge school district.  I have taught on Long Island and Manhattan in various environments which include general, special education, and literacy.  Here at Pines Elementary School I will be teaching Reading Recovery and intervention reading groups.  Also, I will be supporting teachers and students with RTI (Response to Intervention).  I'm very excited to be here!!
