Hello! My name is Elena. I have been working in educational settings since I was 14 years old. I have worked in various settings as a tutor, teacher assistant, student teacher and teacher. I have also worked as an inclusion counselor. I worked for four years one-on-one with an amazing young boy with autism to help him socially engage with his peers, improve his reading, develop skills, and of course, have fun. I have worked with students between 5 and 14 years old. I spent my undergrad studying various kinds of education such as special education, multicultural education, and experiential education. I spent my final year at Hampshire college researching how to make education inclusive to all students as my senior thesis project. My final product included lesson plans that are both inclusive and meet Massachusetts state standards. I also wrote chapters about how community, teaching practices, and physical space/resources can all be utilized to involve students in an education that best supports and challenges them as individuals.
