Hi! My name is Anabel DaSilva.  I teach Social Studies to all 7th grade students here at the Sullivan School.  In 7th grade Social Studies, we spend the year exploring the ancient civilizations of the Fertile Crescent, Egypt, Greece, and Rome.  I love teaching history, especially ancient civilizations! 

I began my teaching career in the Lowell Public Schools at the E. N. Rogers Middle School in 1994. In 2009, after the closing of  the Rogers, I came to the Sullivan and taught 5th grade for two years.  I have been teaching 7th grade Social studies snce 2011.  

As my students can attest, I love everything beach, summer, and flip flop related.  For me, a perfect day is sitting with my toes in the sand watching the waves roll in.

I’m Karen Rothschild seventh grade ELA teacher. I have taught at the Sullivan for the past twenty years. Prior to that, I taught a variety of grades, frankly everything from nursery school to adults.

Seventh grade is my favorite and the students at the Sullivan are the best! I look forward to several more years of teaching before they force me to retire because if left up to me I’ll teach until I’m 100!

Hi, my name is Nicholas McArdle and I teach 7th-grade math while coaching Cross Country and Indoor and Outdoor Track and Field for Lowell High School. I was born and raised in Lowell growing up in Pawtucketville.
I recently graduated from UMass Lowell and received my Bachelor's of Science in Mathematics. Throughout my time at UMass Lowell, I was on their Cross Country and Indoor and Outdoor Track and Field teams.
This is my second year teaching in Lowell Public Schools but first year at the Sullivan. My goal is to make my math class fun while they learn.

Welcome to 7th Grade math, my name is Nancy Graziani.  I am a self-proclaimed Math Geek and I love sharing my love of math with my students.  Don't let my age fool you, I'm a relatively new teacher.  My previous jobs were as an engineer for Raytheon Co. and as a mom to 3 daughters.   Having worked in engineering allows me to show my students all the wonderful ways Math is used "in the real world".  This comes in handy when I'm asked the inevitable question, "When am I ever going to use this????"
I love to travel and meet new people.  Working at the Sullivan brings the world to me through the diverse background of my students.  I'm honored to be their teacher.

Hi!  My name is Elizabeth Travaglini, I am the 7th-grade Teacher of students with a Second Language.  Which simply means that I teach students that are new to the United States and Lowell that have not yet mastered talking in English because their first language is something else.  We focus on acquiring as much English as possible as quickly as possible so that my students can join the monolingual students when they are confident with their newly acquired knowledge!  Some of my students are with me for all or a combination of the following subjects; English, Social Studies, and Math.
 
I have been with Lowell Public Schools since 2001.  I have taught at the Pawtucketville School, Greenhalge School, the Lincoln School, and finally landed at the Sullivan School.  I have taught all grades Pre-Kindergarten to 8th grade.  Most of my teaching was as a 6th grade ELA/SS teacher.  Before I was at the Sullivan, I taught at St. Margaret's in Lowell, and before that, I taught at the Cotting School in Lexington.
 
I was born and raised in Northern New York, on the St. Lawrence River, where I still spend time with my family during the summer and vacations throughout the year.  I am married with two adult children; one daughter, and one son.
 
I look forward to working with your child as they acquire a love of learning as they learn more English!

My name is Diane Kisiel and I am a Special Education Teacher specializing in Reading and English Language Arts, primarily in Grades 7 and 8. I have been teaching at the Sullivan for 8 years, but have been involved with Lowell Public Schools as a parent, paraprofessional and/or teacher for over 25 years. I believe that, given the right support, tools, and instruction, all students can learn at high levels and it is my job to provide that support.

 When I’m not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my husband, Tony, and dogs, Rocky and Daisy, taking road trips in the big red truck.

My name is Michelle Ayer and I teach 7th grade Special Education. I grew up in northern New York, attended Syracuse University (BA Psychology, MS Chemistry), and recently began a second career as a teacher (Assumption College, MA) after being a chemist in New Jersey for many years.
 
I love my new teaching career because I get to help students make sense of Academics (math, reading comprehension) while navigating the joys and challenges of middle school. I believe all students can be successful if given opportunities, patience, and encouragement along with their own effort, courage, and perseverance.
 
I love living in New England with beautiful seasons, endless apples, and snow!
