I wanted to share the news that Michele Bilodeau, learning center teacher, has recently made the decision to accept a teaching position at the Diamond Middle School in Lexington, where she will be a special educator teaching 6th, 7th and 8th grade students. This new opportunity will allow Michele to be much closer to home to support her family, and will also offer her the chance to broaden her experience in education.
I want to thank Michele for her work these past five years at Horace Mann (and over 20 years in Newton). During that time, she has made strong connections to staff, students, and families, while working to support some of our most fragile learners. She has been invested in the special ed process, is a collaborative team member, and a caring individual. I hope you can join me in wishing Michele the best in this new opportunity.
Over the next few days, I will be working with special ed administrators to talk about how this change will impact our staffing needs...more details to follow.
Enjoy these last few days of summer!
