Welcome everyone! My name is Abi Winsted and I will be your kindergartners' Teaching Assistant this year. In 2011, I went off to get my Bachelors Degree at Roger Williams University in Bristol, RI. I graduated with a major in Psychology and a minor in Educational Studies. I became the Science Teacher at Youth Villages- Germaine Lawrence in Arlington, MA which was a school at a residential treatment center for girls 7th through 12th grade. After some time there, I found that my true passion was to work with younger children and I decided to go back to school to get my Master’s Degree in Early Childhood Education. This upcoming year will be my 3rd year as Mrs. Nolan's assistant!
One of my many passions is playing soccer. I have played my whole life and I hope to become a coach as I have recently been certified. I have always loved the game and hope to have an opportunity to help others who share a love for the game. Aside from soccer, I enjoy being outside, photography, playing with my cats, running Spartan races and watching football. Fun fact: One of my non-educational goals in life is to make it to every NFL football stadium!
I am looking forward to another great year at Stratton Elementary School!
