Paul Carreiro

Paul is from Springfield, Massachusetts, and received his master's degree from Dalhousie University and his bachelor's degree from York University. He currently teaches at Cavalier Drive School in Lower Sackville, Nova Scotia. He is a learning center teacher for students with autism, cerebral palsy, global delays, and severe behavior problems.

"At this point in my career, I have taught almost everything from kindergarten to grade-nine English, with side trips, such as my current one, into special education," he says. "I became a teacher and still love it (most days) because I am interested in almost everything. Teaching allows me to follow up and develop these interests."

His areas of specialty include language development, cognitive development, media literacy, and working with special needs children. He is currently trying to develop expertise on the connections between math and language.

Paul is married with two children.
