Greetings From Gail

We have been working very hard at Samuel Morey to help the students that have difficulty with self-regulation or exhibit disruptive behaviors in the classroom. Our goal is to help the student and to minimize disruption to the class.

I would like to introduce you to three people that are part of our system:

  • Robert Bryant has provided crises response services for schools and hospitals and youth service organization in the Northeast during the past twenty-eight years. His work with Rivendell utilizes his skills as coach in support of all staff. He helps staff support students to find greater safety and success and is a member of our education support team at all three schools. The majority of Mr. Bryant's work is in supporting staff is learning new ways to respond to challenging behavior. He may observe or talk with students to better understand the situation.
  • Phil Metayer has been a special education assistant for the last few years. This year Phil or Mr. M. as the students call him, is our behavior intervention coach. He supports students in many different capacities. He helps students that need extra support with self-regulation, social skills or just need someone to help with a success plan. His position is grant funded.
  • Leanne Levesque is our new school-based clinician. Leanne is supported by Clara Martin. She will be attending 504 meetings and IEP meetings as needed. She will work with students in small groups, students in crisis or may just be someone that students can talk to if they need to process an issue. She will also be a support to families that may need services outside of school.

We are lucky to have these talented people expand our system of support for students and families.
