Longmeadow—Willie Ross School for the Deaf (WRSD) has announced that Aubrey Jazwierski has been hired as the school’s Coordinator of Student and Administrative Services.
Jazwierski recently moved to Western Massachusetts from Nebraska with her husband, who serves in the military, and their two children. Earlier in her career, Jazwierski worked as an American Sign Language interpreter at a college in the midwest, and has also worked at Governor Baxter School for the Deaf in Maine. More recently during her time in Nebraska, Jazwierski worked for the state as a social worker for foster care, and just prior to that, she worked as a developmental disabilities service coordinator, also for the state.
In her new position, Jazwierski is responsible for ensuring all student and staff files are in compliance with local, state and federal regulations; supervising staff, such as the school nurse, lunch program and clerical staff; and coordinating referrals and admissions to the school. She is also responsible for preparing reports for the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) and other appropriate governing bodies and for the oversight of current licensure status.
According to Jazwierski on why she accepted a position at Willie Ross, “Working with deaf individuals and deaf culture is my passion. I feel there is a strong need to educate people on deaf culture, and this position seemed like an amazing opportunity for that. I’m looking forward to growing as an individual as I learn my new role.”
Jazwierski, who is originally from Cape Cod, lives in Westfield with her husband and children, who are almost 2 and 4 years old.
