Miss Alyse Picciotto is a special education teacher at Normandin Middle School in New Bedford. She was nominated by Jessica and Jordan Cordeiro for the support she has shown their child in the first few weeks at a new school.

“Ms. Picciotto, or Ms. P as the kids call her, is a special education teacher at Normandin Middle School and she should win this award for several reasons. Even though this is her first year at Normandin, she has already made a huge impact on the kids in the few short weeks they have been at school, especially my son in particular. My son went from not wanting to go to school last year to this year looking forward to going to school every morning. Also, she is making the kids feel comfortable with transitioning to a new school. As you probably know, middle school can be challenging - especially for kids with disabilities. I know it has only been a few short weeks since school has started, but she has already made my child feel comfortable. I know as the school year goes on, she will only go above and beyond for these kids. So please consider my son’s teacher for this month’s SouthCoast Teacher of the Month award.”
