SEEing to Lead

Jun 21, 2021

Jessica Giuliano started her career in education as a paraprofessional for an at risk student.  She received my teaching certification from the University of Saint Joseph’s and a Masters in Education at the University of New Haven.  She also received her 6th year Administrative Certification (092) in Administrative Leadership at UCONN.  Jessica taught 5th grade for one year in Cromwell, CT before making the move to CREC where she is a Grade 6 English Language Arts teacher at the Greater Hartford Academy of the Arts Middle Magnet School, as well as the Grade 6 Team Leader.  During my time at CREC Jessica has run the Summer Academy and Saturday Academy programs, planned and presented district and building based professional development, is a member of her school’s leadership team, and a member of the district wide Professional Development and Teacher Evaluation Committee.
