My name is Mrs. Linda Petillo. I am the special education teacher for this program. I attended Southern Connecticut State University and have earned a Bachelor's degree, a Master's degree and a Sixth Year degree in Administration and Supervision. I have been teaching in Milford since 1977. I was Teacher of the Year while teaching at Calf Pen Meadow School. I was also awarded the Mike Cummings award. This award is given to a staff member who has gone above and beyond their job responsibilities. I was truly surprised and honored to have been nominated by my colleagues. I have always enjoyed teaching. I hope your child will continue to develop a love of learning. Learning should be fun and exciting for all of us. We are all lifelong learners.
