WHO WE ARE...
Mrs. Mead (1 on 1 Teacher Aide)
Mrs. Mead joined our classroom in February with a background in Nursing & a certified level 3 teaching assistant. Her past years of experience have been at the OHM BOCES as a student manager and a teacher's assistant.
Mrs. Buddle (1 on 1 Teacher Assistant)
Mrs. Buddle joins our classroom this second part of the school year. She has had years of experience at the local Herkimer BOCES working as an occupational therapist. She is bringing her knowledge of being an 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 second 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.
