About Bruce

My name is Bruce R and I have recently moved to Durham, North Carolina. I would like to continue my career in education or an education related field on a full or part time basis. I have just completed 31 years of service in the Westerly Public Schools system in Westerly, Rhode Island.
During my years of service I have taught and counseled in many different ways. With a background in special education, I started my career at the high school level as the Vocational Coordinator for the special needs population. In this role I did hands on and computerized vocational assessments and surveys, taught vocational readiness classes, and pioneered a community work placement program.

My next role within Westerly High School was as the district’s first collaborative instructor. In this role I teamed with several classroom teachers to co-teach English Language Arts, History, and Math classes. Two teachers, employing multi-modality instruction enabled resource and other special needs population students to successfully participate in regular class education. In conjunction with this role, I served as the districts Secondary Child Find Coordinator working with students who had withdrawn from school and students who were chronically absent in an effort to re-engage them in a variety of education options.

I transitioned into the Guidance Department at Westerly High School where I spent six years serving grades 9-12 as a School Counselor. Finally, moving to Westerly Middle School, I enjoyed three years as a grade 7 Collaborative Resource Teacher before transferring into my current position of the last nine years as School Counselor for grades 6 and 7.
