“The Friendly Schools” welcomes two new teachers


Two new teachers to the Valley Stream District 30 School District took center stage during the district’s regular board of education meeting on Sept. 20.

Director of Human Resources Marcela Moran, along with fellow administrators and board of education trustees, welcomed Jennifer Aviles, who will be a teaching assistant at Shaw Avenue School, and Michel Cabral-Martin, who will serve as a speech teacher. Aviles holds a master’s degree in early childhood education from Grand Canyon University and recently was the coordinator of professional development at the Economic Opportunity Commission of Nassau County.

Cabral-Martin joins the district’s staff with a wealth of experience in remedial and speech therapy, with her most recent experience working with elementary, middle and high school students. Cabral-Martin received a master’s degree in communication sciences and disorders and speech pathology from Adelphi University.
