I am pleased to announce the appointment of Candace Ziino, effective December 28th, as a fourth grade teacher at Preston Veterans’ Memorial School. Candace received her Bachelor of Science degree in psychology from Bridgewater State University (2012) and a Master of Science in Elementary Education from Southern Connecticut State University (2016). Following her graduation from Bridgewater State, Candace was employed by the Wesley Elementary School in Middletown, CT as a full-time substitute teacher for a two year period before becoming a Child Associate, a position that required her to work principally with children experiencing difficulty adjusting to the school environment.
A resident of Canterbury, Candace completed her student teaching assignments at the Jack Jackter Intermediate School (Grade Four) in Colchester, CT and East Haddam Elementary School (Grade One) in East Hassam, CT.
Please join me in welcoming Candace to Preston Veterans’ Memorial School.
John J. Welch, Ed.D., Superintendent
