About Me

Hello! I am Magalis. I am from Rhode Island and graduated with a BA in History from Rhode Island College. I have spent my entire professional career working with kids and/or adults with disabilities.

What about the residency are you most looking forward to?

The part of the residency I am looking forward to is the learning aspect for both the kids and myself. Although I have worked in childcare centers and after-school programs, this is my first time being in the classroom at this level.

Did you have a teacher who made a lasting impression on you?

What made this teacher special was that she was willing to see something in me that I was not yet able to see in myself. She challenged me and, when needed, she offered any help she could. That encouragement and reliability was extremely special.
