Northshire Day School is honored to award the 2020 Community Service Partner Award to Betsy LaVecchia. This award is given to an individual or community organization who has partnered with Northshire Day School to enhance and promote children's early learning experiences, provide support for families, and enriched our Northshire Day School Community.
When thinking about a partner who has made a huge impact on Northshire Day School, the choice
was easy, Betsy LaVecchia. Betsy is a speech language pathologist (SLP) with the Bennington-Rutland Supervisory Union and she has been providing SLP services at NDS for the past several years. She has compassion, patience, and kindness when working with each child. Betsy builds a relationship with
each child to make them excited for their time spent together. All of the children love to see Betsy
walk through the door and run right up to her. She not only is a fabulous educator and SLP to the
young children she works with, but she is also wonderful support staff to have, as she is fair and
equal to all teachers in the classroom. She provides them with guidance and support while supporting the children as well. We couldn’t think of a better person to receive this award and we are honored
to work with her!!
