EAST HARTFORD – LEARN and Goodwin University are pleased to promote Jennifer Cimmino to interim Supervisor of Student Services for Goodwin Magnet Schools.

Cimmino will continue the support system for all students at the Riverside Magnet School (RMS) and the Connecticut River Academy (CTRA). The two schools are jointly administered by LEARN and Goodwin University with Goodwin owning and having ultimate oversight of the campus inter-district magnet school operations. LEARN and Goodwin, through RMS and CTRA, are making their mark in the field of Connecticut’s education by offering students a pre-kindergarten through grade 12 public education experience on the Goodwin University campus. By promoting Cimmino to interim Student Services Supervisor, the two educational giants have underscored their commitment to equity for all learners.

As interim Supervisor of Student Services, Cimmino will supervise special education at RMS and CTRA and ensure each school provides academic, emotional, and physical services for students who require additional support to thrive. “I am excited to continue my work with LEARN’s Student Support Services,” Cimmino said. “Collaborating with families, educators, and districts to best meet the needs of all students, especially in these challenging times, is so very important.”

Cimmino, a resident of Waterford, Connecticut, is a graduate of the University of Saint Joseph in West Hartford, where she earned a degree in special education. Her Master’s degree, also in Special Education, is from UConn; her Sixth-Year degree is in Educational Leadership from Central Connecticut State University.

Cimmino is well prepared as she takes on her position as supervisor. Her 14 years of experience include teaching students with complex cognitive, physical, and behavioral needs. She instructed students in kindergarten through grade 6 at LEARN’s Ocean Avenue LEARNing Academy in New London and supported 18-21-year-olds at LEARN’s Transition Academy in East Lyme. Previously, she spent 10 years as an elementary special education teacher at LEARN’s Regional Multicultural Magnet School in New London.

Cimmino begins her new position immediately.
