Our Leadership

Dawn DeSimone

Mrs. DeSimone is Director of College Counseling and Placement at The Craig School, a private school for children with learning disabilities in Mountain Lakes and Lincoln Park, NJ.

Relying on her experience in special education and in business, Mrs. DeSimone, created LD Resource Group to connect families and students to the programs and professionals who are dedicated to her cause and mission. In addition to her college counseling responsibilities at The Craig School, Mrs. DeSimone is the National Honor Society Faculty Committee Advisor, bringing National Honor Society (NHS) programs to the students who possess the academic, civic, and leadership qualities to be an NHS member.
