My name is Erin Collins and I am the CSA K-2 Special Education Teacher. This is my 4th year teaching in Lowell and my 2nd year working at the Pawtucketville. I live with my fiance, Bryan, my daughter Keira, and our 2 cats, Jack and Ziva. My favorite part about teaching is celebrating the students' accomplishments, however big or small, and that it is incredibly rewarding! When I am not teaching, I like to go to the gym, hike, watch my daughter play softball, and volunteer. I am a Girl Scout troop leader in Lowell, so if you're ever craving Girl Scout cookies, I've got the hook-up!

Hello!

I am the school speech and language pathologist and my name is Debbie Shanahan.

This is my 19th year teaching here at Pawtucketville Memorial and I love it!

I love watching my students master a new sound, use a memory strategy successfully or answer a question with confidence because they have looked back in the text. I want them to enjoy coming to speech because they feel supported and successful.

When I am not teaching – as many of my students know – I love to golf! As I say to them – I love golf, but it doesn’t always love me. I play anyway. ;)

I also love spending time with my family – especially my grandchildren.

I am so happy to be a part of this wonderful school with it’s many traditions that have helped foster a true community spirit.

Mrs. Mendonca

My name is Mrs. Lorna Mendonca.  I am working as a Special Education Teacher for grades K-2 this year.  I came to teach at PMES in 2000.  My children attended PMES, so I was active in the PTO for many years.  I have been teaching in Lowell Public Schools since 1988.  
I live with my husband, Mr. Mendonca, my dog, Dixie, and my cat, CiCi.  I also have 3 grandchildren.  Two are students here at PMES, and one attends the Wang School.
My favorite things to teach are Reading and Social Studies.  It is super groovy to watch children develop their Literacy Skills.  Social Studies helps us learn about cool events and people in our world, past and present.  
When I am not teaching, my favorite thing to do is cook, watch cooking shows, eat, watch Columbo reruns, and hang out with my grandchildren.
