New Special Education Teacher

Four Questions for Gabby Fratello

We are excited to welcome Gabby Fratello to the Lane School.

What makes you excited about coming to Bedford?

I’m looking forward to establishing relationships with students, parents, and colleagues.  Bedford is a close-knit community that I’m excited to be a part of.  

Why did you decide to become a teacher?

I decided to become a teacher because I love learning and instilling that love of learning in my students.  I had such a positive school experience growing up, so I want my students to have a positive experience as well.  It’s so gratifying helping children succeed, which is why I truly enjoy what I do.  

What is your fondest memory of when you were an upper elementary student?

I grew up in southern Connecticut and our fifth grade field trip was to Boston.  This was my first time ever visiting Boston.  Clearly, I loved it because here I am, living and working in the Boston area!

Tell us one thing we would be surprised to learn about you?

I love sports, whether it is playing or watching!  I’m a New York Yankees fan and a New England Patriots fan, which is a unique combination.
