Meet the Program Coordinator

Joseph Gibowicz, Early Childhood Coordinator
I have worked in the field of special education since 1994 as a teacher, case manager and now early childhood coordinator. Since 1997 I have worked with a wide variety of preschool aged children with and without special needs. I enjoy the excitement and joy that preschoolers have around learning and believe strongly in providing quality programming for preschool aged students. Outside of school I enjoy being outdoors and spending time with my wonderful wife and 3 daughters. I am extremely excited to be part of the Acton-Boxborough Early Childhood Program!

I have been an Early Childhood/Special Educator for the past 10 years at the Blanchard Memorial School in Boxborough. I am passionate about creating authentic learning environments where children, parents, teachers and administrators work together collaboratively to co-construct knowledge through hands-on, process-oriented explorations. Past professional experiences include Kindergarten Teacher, NAEYC Consultant, Accredited Home Day Care Provider and Special Education Tutor. I live in Groton, MA with my husband and four wonderful children. My interests include yoga, hiking, reading, cooking, traveling, ministry work, and spending time outdoors with my family.

Lynne Tremblay
With over twenty years in the field of education, I’m so delighted to be part of the Acton Boxborough Early Childhood Team. Welcoming my third year at the Blanchard site, I’ve worked with students of all age levels, both within the private and public sector, throughout New Hampshire and Massachusetts. Having graduated with a bachelor degree in Elementary and Special Education, I discovered my true passion for working with young children and their families. I returned to school to receive my Masters in Early Childhood Education. I dedicate my professional aspirations to building relationships with families to support the developmental growth of our young children as they explore the wonder of the world around them, developing skills and the excitement to promote lifelong learning. I balance my professional goals with my personal desires of running, drawing, photography and, most importantly, spending time with the beautiful blessing of my family.


Meet the Therapists

Jenn Weisberg, Speech/Language Therapist

I've had the pleasure of working with children as a Speech and Language Pathologist for the past 33 years.  I received my Bachelor's degree from UMass, Amherst and my Master's degree from Northeastern University.  I've been at the Blanchard School since 1999 and have been part of the Early Childhood program from 2002 to present. Prior to coming to the Blanchard School, I was on staff at the Holliston Public Schools and the Brockton Public Schools/Brockton Visiting Nurse Association.  Currently, I service students in the Integrated Early Childhood Program at Blanchard and provide services for itinerant speech students.   Speech and language therapy is provided in and out of the classroom setting.   I currently live in Sudbury, MA with my husband and have two grown children.  

Tracey Cammarano, Occupational Therapist
I received my Masters in Occupational Therapy from Washington University (StL, MO). I have worked in pediatrics for the past 23 years in a variety of settings including orthopedic rehabilitation, early intervention, and private and public schools. Upon moving to Massachusetts 20 years ago, I have focused my skills with children ages birth to 6 years of age working for MinuteMan Arc Early Intervention and then joining the Early Childhood Program eight years ago.  It is a privilege to work with a team of educators with a holistic and thorough approach to development. The enthusiasm and growth of a child is a remarkable experience that I am blessed to be a part of.  Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my husband and three teenage children often watching many hours of their sports.  My interests include running, playing soccer, gardening, traveling, and just being outside.
