WHO WE ARE...
Mrs. Castellano: 1 on 1 Teacher Assistant
Mrs. Castellano joins our class as a 1:1 teacher assistant. She brings experience with her to the classroom having worked with autistic students. She brings that experience with her from The Promise Program at The Kelberman Center.
Mrs. Buddle: 1 on 1 Teacher Assistant
Mrs. Buddle is returning for a second year classroom this school year. She has had years of experience at the local Herkimer BOCES working as an occupational therapist. She brings her knowledge of being a PT to our classroom as well.
Mrs. Coppola: Teacher Assistant
Mrs. Coppola spent several years as a teacher's assistant at both the elementary and middle school levels. This is her third year working at the Middle School as a TA. Mrs. Coppola always goes above and beyond her daily routines for the classroom and the students. She has a wealth of knowledge. Our classroom does not run smoothly without her.
My background includes teaching at the elementary and high school levels and working as a college athletic instructor. Most recently, I spent four years as a special education teacher at the Herkimer BOCES with my autistic students. Throughout my 20 years in education, I have also coached all levels, from youth sports to college. I am proud to say, I have been a member of the Maroon Knights' coaching staff.
* Looking forward to the 2022-2023 School Year! *
