Nargish Akther, Treatment Coordinator Supervisor
I was born in Bangladesh. I moved to the USA when I was in 6th grade. Moving to a new country and going to a new school was not easy especially when you barely spoke English, but I was very ambitious and hardworking. I never gave up and always tried my best. My hard work paid off when I graduated from William Paterson University in May 2015 with a bachelor degree in public health. I also minored in Psychology. I’m a Certified Nursing assistant also certified in first aid and CPR.

I have been with the Full-Service Community School Health Center at School 15 since 2014. I am a mother of four beautiful children and worked as a Dental Assistant for a dental office for about 8 years. I left to attend American Institute to pursue a certification in dental assistance along with other credentials needed in the field of dentistry. Becoming a Treatment Coordinator of a Health Center has been one of the best decisions I have made in my life. Being able to grow a relationship with all the children in the clinic is what I look forward to every day. Whether it is providing services to them or just having them stop in to say ‘hi,’ the children of the Full-Service Community School Health Center have become my children too. My promise is that I will go above and beyond to provide everything that they need.

I was born in the Dominican Republic and moved to the United States at the age of four. Both, the USA and the Dominican Republic have been my home throughout my life. This has given me the opportunity to experience great cultural diversity. I have a Bachelors degree in Psychology from Montclair State University and aspire to obtain a Teaching degree in the same Subject. To help students and their families make their journeys a bit less difficult, gives me immense gratification every day.
