Welcome Assistant Director of Special Education Kelly Kreizinger!
I'm incredibly excited to introduce myself as the Assistant Director of Elementary Special Education.
I have spent the entirety of my professional career in Special Education. After graduating from Bridgewater State College, I entered the field through Early Intervention working for People Incorporated for three years as a Developmental Specialist and Educator. From there I transitioned into my teaching career at South Coast Educational Collaborative where I taught Kindergarten up through grade 5. During that time I earned my master's degree in Special Education from Simmons College and ultimately returned to higher education to earn my certification as a Special Education Administrator through Boston University. While at South Coast my role evolved and I became a Program Facilitator, Teacher/Leader, and ultimately a Special Education Administrator of the Seekonk North Elementary Program. In this capacity I oversaw nine elementary classrooms while also co-leading the middle school program. In addition to my role as building administrator, I also led the organization’s New Pedagogies for Deep Learning initiative where I was able to attend multiple leadership conferences across Canada and the United States.
My desire to become a Special Education Administrator came directly from my experiences as a classroom teacher. Having the opportunity to teach exceptional students and assist them in realizing their potential left me wanting to have a broader reach. I am invigorated by collaboration and love to work with dedicated and motivated teams and I know that Mansfield is the perfect place to continue that journey. I’m highly committed to working with students, families, staff, and the community and am overjoyed to be part of the Mansfield School District.

The Mansfield Police Department is hosting a drive through trick or treating event at the Mansfield Police Department. The event was created because this year the childrens Halloween may be very different and some may not be able to participate at all.
What they have planned is a drive through behind the Mansfield Police Station where the kids will be greeted by many of their favorite superheroes. All candy given out will be nut free. Additionally there are also small bracelets and plastic coins that will be passed out. The goodies will be sent into the vehicle via pvc tube to maintain a 6 foot social distance. Any and all are welcome to drive through the event. Bentley will also be there in costume! Click HERE to watch their video.
