Judy Tessier- Awesome Advocate

When asked to describe teacher Judy Tessier, Nick hikes his arm up to his speech device and begins typing words like:  “Funny, like, teacher, funny, makes laugh, fun.”  This is how Nick begins to formulate his raw thoughts as he reflects upon his time working with Judy.

Nick has been so fortunate to meet and watch this dynamic community educator in action.  Loveland’s young children are extremely fortunate to have Judy and her cohorts as public educators here.

Judy has worked the last two years at the Monroe Early Childhood center.  Judy’s work with children includes teaching both Gifted & Talented groups, as well as Special Education classes.

A 30-year veteran educator (BA-Art Education), Judy taught in Massachusetts until a couple of years ago, and is the person responsible for all of Nick’s crazy costume moments during her literacy events with the Center over the last couple of years!

Judy has been married 31 years, has two grown children and one grandchild, and has lived the last 10 years in Colorado.

What a creative, fun, funny and Awesome Advocate for all children in Colorado!

The AiA team, at Nick’s direction, would like you to know that he recently disappeared for a small medical issue, but has returned in true style like the superhero he is!  There’s only one thing to do when you disappear ….

In keeping with the push of information, Nick found two pieces of information today while checking messages and getting back up to speed on work life.
