Welcome!

Welcome to the PALS Program

Hello and Welcome to PALS Program!

My name is Lindsay Ross and I am a Special Education Teacher in the PALS Program at Matthew Thornton School. Our district wide classroom is a busy place, filled with learners in grades one through five. This year, I continue to share my roles and responsiblities with Special Education Teacher, Kathy Horohoe, Speech and Language Pathologist, Kathy Mosowitz, and Occupational Therapist, Holly Drazen. Together, we will be co-teaching and servicing the needs of the PALS Program students within our three adjoining classrooms. Should you need to locate our classrooms, we are housed in Rooms 1 (Red Room), 4 (Blue Room) and 8 (Green Room).

Throughout the school year, our classroom will be supported by the following skilled instructional assistants: Mrs. Sheri Breau, Mrs. Jennifer Brooks, Mrs. Susan Bruhmuller, Mrs. Toni Butler, Mrs. Jane Daniels, Miss Danielle Jubinville, Miss Molly Kralich, Mrs. Denise Manella, Mrs. Sarah Lang, LNA, and Mrs. Terry Ruggiero.

The staff and I will be working with students individually and in small groups on learning tasks designed to meet their individual needs and goals. We are all looking forward to an exciting year in our program!
