Welcome to Departments - LSS



The Reading Department

Greetings LSS Families and Friends! I’d like to take this time to introduce myself.  My name is Amy Hardell (formerly Amy Gallo), and I will be the new reading teacher at Lake Street School.  I have a Master’s Degree from CCSU in Corrective and Remedial Reading, and for the past year, I’ve been working as a 5th grade teacher in room 17.  Before that, I taught Reading Intervention at VCMS.  Although I will surely miss my fifth graders, I am excited to begin my new role as the Reading Teacher so that I may share my love of reading with the rest of Lake Street School.    

Mrs. Amy Hardell

The Math Department

Welcome to LSS Math! I very excited to bring math intervention to Lake Street School. My role is to support our students’ academic success by working collaboratively with teachers to implement a quality mathematics program based on the common core standards and differentiated for student needs.  As our math interventionist, I am responsible for helping to identify students in need of math remediation, providing individualized intervention using hands on, manipulative based instruction, and monitoring and assessing student progress.  I aim to support all students in a variety of ways to form a solid foundation of mathematics skills and concepts. In addition, I hope to be a valuable resource for expanding both teacher and parent understanding of current mathematics research and knowledge. Above all, fostering a love for learning along the way.

The Special Education Department

Hello from Miss Blanchard, Ms. Boltseridge, and Mrs. Kowalczyk!  We are the special education team at Lake Street School.  The goal of our team is to ensure that every student’s unique learning needs are met. We are always collaborating with classroom teachers and related services, such as: occupational therapy, school psychology, physical therapy, and speech language pathology, to develop and implement highly effective educational plans. In addition to meeting the diverse academic needs of our students, we also target social skills, essential life skills, and self-advocacy. The Lake Street School special education department is dedicated to fostering every child’s love for learning, and to help each child achieve his/her maximum potential!  We appreciate your support at home, and look forward to working together this year toward your child’s success!
