How did our six newest employees find League School? Online job board is tops
The League School recently welcomed six new employees to our team. The majority discovered the school online, primarily on Indeed. Two employees found the school by driving by it. Stephany Noriega, a new Assistant Teacher, was researching job opportunities online that were closer to her home in Rhode Island when she came across League School. “I was working in the Randolph public school’s sub-separate program for children with all types of disabilities including autism and knew I wanted to work more with this population,” she said. “In addition to getting to know the children and staff, I’ve appreciated the amount of training we received before actually entering the classroom. I felt more prepared to start on the floor than I have at any previous job.”
Inva Quoka, Assistant Teacher
Inva Qoku, another new Assistant Teacher, found the school online and had heard good things about it. “What attracted me to the school was working with students with autism as I have experience with these children including ones with challenging behaviors,” said Inva. “I enjoy working with the children and the staff is so friendly and helpful.” Before becoming a school employee, Inva worked as a language teacher at St. Catherine Greek Church in Braintree. Prior to that, she was a special education teacher for four years in Athens, Greece.
Ibrahima Sarr, Direct Support Residential Program
Ibrahima Sarr, a new direct support professional in our residential program, applied for the position online because of his commitment to human service work. “I have worked with men, women, and teenagers as a human service worker and am also passionate about teaching,” said Ibrahima. “I am deeply grateful for the entire League School team and the reception, training, and support extended the first week.” Before coming on board, Ibrahima was a meaningful day coordinator and residential counselor at Community Resources for Justice, a developmental services worker for the Department of Developmental Services, and a case manager for Lifeworks where he still works. He moved to the U.S. in 2017 from Senegal where he was a Teacher Assistant at the University of Cheikh Anta Diop in Dakar.
Rachelle Ojo, Direct Support Residential Program
Rachelle Ojo is a new direct support professional at Educational Learning Center 1. After graduation from the University of Rhode Island, she was looking for a job on Indeed when she found League School. “I love talking to and meeting new people,” said Rachelle. “I am really enjoying learning about the students and their individual personalities and interests.”
Katie Garvey, Assistant Teacher
Katie Garvey, a new Assistant Teacher, drove by the school and called to inquire about openings. “I wanted to work with those with autism for a while, and when I found the League School I was so excited,” she said. “The staff answers my questions and is so helpful. I feel so supported even though I’m just starting here.” Prior to joining the school, Katie was a manager for a sensory gym for children with autism.
Kyle DeMunda, Head Teacher
Like Katie, Kyle DeMunda found League School when she drove by it. “I’d driven by the school many times and was interested in learning more about it, so researched it online and was drawn to what it had to offer,” said Kyle. “I’ve enjoyed meeting the wonderful staff and students. Everyone I have encountered has been welcoming, supportive, and helpful, and I look forward to many more experiences here at the League School.” Kyle received her Master’s degree in Early Childhood Education from American International College. Upon graduation, she was a Substitute Teacher and Para Educator at the Braintree Public Schools while also nannying for families on the South Shore.
