My name is Deborah D'Andrea, and I am the Academic Instructional Coach at Shaw VPA. This is my 8th year working at Shaw. I taught 1st grade and pull out reading intervention before moving into my current role as AIC. I obtained a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education in 2007 from Webster University. In 2009, I returned to Webster University to work on a Master's in Reading. In 2012, I finished my masters and am now a certified reading specialist. I am looking forward to continuing to work with our Shaw staff, families and students to make this year a great success.
