Educational Services Professional of the Year

Governor's Educational Services Professional of the Year
Posted on 12/14/2020

It was September 2019 when Mr. Matthew Addeo seamlessly transitioned from his position as a School #1 special education teacher to 7th-grade guidance counselor at the Lewis F. Cole Middle School.  The love and admiration Mr. Addeo received from his classroom students continue in his role as counselor, and once you meet him, it is easy to understand why.  Mr. Addeo is extremely passionate about the social and emotional growth of all of his students and works very hard to develop strong relationships with them throughout this very pivotal time in their educational career.   His sense of humor and warm spirit have made it effortless for him to reach not only his students, but their parents, and his colleagues alike.  Mr. Addeo is a wonderful addition to the middle school family, and we congratulate him on being our 2020-2021 Educational Services Professional of the Year!
