As the interim director of student services, Lincoln will oversee the Student Services Office, which assists school staff in working with families to meet the unique needs of students through individualized learning programs.
“The Student Services Office works to meet the needs of every student and their family,” said Assistant Superintendent of Teaching and Learning Dr. Shari Fedorowicz. “Kristine is an attentive and compassionate educator and I am confident that she will foster the supportive environment necessary for our students’ growth and development.”
Lincoln has served as the Old Rochester Regional School District’s special education department coordinator (grades 7-12) since 2018. From 2007-2018, she served as a teacher working with students with vision impairments and as an assistive technology specialist at ORR.
Prior, Lincoln worked with students with vision impairments in the Mattapoisett Public Schools, at the South Coast Education Collaborative in Swansea, and at Northeast Visions Consultants in Needham.
“Kristine brings a wealth of knowledge in student services and our districts,” said Superintendent Nelson. “I am confident that she will be an excellent fit for this role and an outstanding resource for families and staff.”
Added Human Resource Manager Sue Cunningham, “We are excited to have Kristine join our districts’ leadership team, and are grateful for her work helping to prepare the Student Services Office for the new school year.”
