Asher Holmes Elementary School Home of the Colts!

Please Create A Marquee


Hello Parents and Guardians,
Welcome to Asher. I am Mrs. Colao, the school counselor for grades 1-5. I graduated with a BA in education and dance from Rowan University. Soon after graduating from Rowan, I continued my education and became certified in special education. Education was always valued in my family, so it was no surprise to anyone when I completed my graduate work at Georgian Court College. At GCU, I earned my Master's degree in Education with a concentration in Student Personnel and recently also completed certification in Supervision. I also have been provided with an endorsement from Rutgers University in Social Emotional Character Development.

I am happy to note I have been with the Marlboro Township School District for twenty- five years! Before being Asher's school counselor, I was a teacher here for 6 years. It is wonderful to be working with families whom I can now serve in this rewarding position.

I look forward to getting to know you and your children. Please note that if you would like to contact me for assistance on any matter, do not hesitate to reach me by email at [email protected] or by phone at (732)-972-2080, ext. 6160.

Best wishes for a great "academic" year!
