About me

Industry Education
Location United States
Introduction I am first and foremost a parent of 5 children, two of which have disabilities and continue to learn so much from each of them. I am currently the Director of the Community School & Adult Programs at the South Shore Educational Collaborative. I have many years of experience in the field of education serving infants, children and adults with special needs in public, private and residential settings. I am currently adjunct faculty at Northeastern University, Bridgewater State University, Endicott College and Lesley University. The picture is of me and my service dog J.R. He was trained and donated by NEADS.org. This is a wonderful organization that trains service animals. He comes to work with me and supports students who have complex disabilities.
