Aimee

Educational Consultant

Aimee Nittolo is an innovative educational leader with a nearly twenty-year career in education that has been extraordinarily rich and remarkable. In her first few years as a teacher, she found herself thirsty for more professional knowledge and wanting to provide a better learning experience for her students.  She had been teaching for seven years in first grade, third grade, and middle school language arts when she became a teacher in a district whose leadership valued and encouraged ongoing professional development.  She enthusiastically took advantage of every opportunity to learn from the authors, scholars, and professors who are experts on the best and current student-centered ideas and methods in education such as the workshop model, The 20time Project, and The Patterns of Thinking Method.  The unique training she received sparked a passion about the existence and significance of literacy in every discipline, so she then became an instructional coach, pursuing a Master’s degree in curriculum and instruction with an emphasis in children’s literature from Penn State. She then embraced the incredible opportunity to train in Design Thinking at the Institute for Innovation in Atlanta, Georgia, and created a way to bring it into K-8 classrooms.  She has trained teachers within her district in the art of data collection and analysis to drive instructional practices, leading to an increase in student achievement.  She has led numerous other professional development workshops in topics ranging from implementing The 20time Project, to literacy to innovation to yoga, SEL and mindfulness, and she is a co-owner of an educational consulting firm.  Aimee has a Masters degree in educational leadership and is currently a Supervisor of Student Services where sbe supports students, teachers, staff, and families in our mutual goal of meeting the needs of every student.
