Assistant to the Principal

  • driscoll “I want to be a school teacher!” 
    My father loves to remind me that I began professing my dream job at 3 years old.  It is safe to say that my passion for education, for working with children, started all those years ago.
    Directly after graduating from high school, I began working toward my goal as an undergraduate student at Boston College.  I graduated with a BA in Elementary Education and Human Development, and moved on to receive my Master’s Degree from Lesley University.
    My career began immediately, as an employee of the Milford Public Schools.  First, as a long term substitute at Brookside Elementary, then, as a fifth grade English Language Arts teacher, where I remained for 14 years.  As Assistant to the Principal, I continue my commitment to the Milford Public Schools, specifically my passion for working with children. 
    Making the decision to leave the classroom and join the administrative team at Memorial School was one that brought me excitement and joy.  The nervousness I initially felt was quickly calmed by the warm welcome that everyone in the Memorial School family has shown.  Everything at Memorial has amazed me: the wonderful students whose smiles brighten my day, the commitment of the staff and the families, and the way the building feels like home. 
    I look forward to this school year, and know that it will be great!
