SITE COORDINATOR: Josh Begley (9th Year)
ABOUT JOSH: I graduated from Wheaton College in Norton, Massachusetts with a political science major and general education minor. I’ve held several positions in the education field, most recently as an inclusion aide in the Newton Public Schools, a teacher assistant at The Montessori Children’s House of Wellesley, and a lead counselor at Broadmoor Wildlife Sanctuary’s summer camp program. I am a proud member of the “after school movement” and feel privileged to help children learn and grow through play every day. In my free time, I enjoy watching baseball, playing softball, kayaking, and hiking.
TEACHERS: Lisa Vergara (2nd Year) & Stephanie Zafferano (4th Year)
ABOUT LISA: I am excited to be part of the WCCC After School Program at Fiske. I have 35+ years experience in administrative and hands on roles within educational systems in every level ranging from college, high school, middle school and elementary school. I enjoy working with children and love sharing creative art projects. My passions are promoting reading and spreading kindness. I enjoy nature walks and spending time with family.
ABOUT STEPHANIE: I grew up in Needham and attended Endicott College, where I received a Bachelors in Psychology/Early Ed. I’ve always enjoyed working with children, and have been doing so for over 20 years! I love watching kids learn and grow, and I especially enjoy helping them learn and grow through art. Whether the children I’m working with are 5 or 15, I’m focused on keeping them safe and happy, and of course I believe in having a great time doing so!
FLOATING SITE COORDINATOR: Dan Finucane (6th Year)
ABOUT DAN: I grew up in Natick and attended Boston College. I love the outdoors, animals and sports, and I’ve worked with kids all my life. I’m excited for the opportunity to get to know all of the kids at after school in my role as Floating Site Coordinator! I am also a combination teacher in the Early Childhood Program’s Purple Room. Previously, I was Co-Site Coordinator of our 3rd-5th grade program at Upham.
FLOATING TEACHERS: John Bradley (3rd Year), Jared Lanyon (9th Year), Nicole Little (9th Year), Ali Moss (3rd Year), & Stephen Pfaff (1st Year)
ABOUT JOHN: I graduated from Mass Bay Community College with a degree in Human Services. This past summer I worked at Tenacre Summer camp in Wellesley as a second grade counselor. I previously worked as a senior counselor at the Wellesley Recreation Department’s Camp Joey. One of my favorite after school activities with the children is playing sports in the gym and outside! In my free time I love to play basketball and golf and take my dog on long walks and hikes.
ABOUT NICOLE: I am a graduate of Providence College and with a degree in secondary education and social studies. Prior to WCCC, I worked at a charter middle school and was a long-term substitute at Bates. This is my 9th year at after school and I have enjoyed getting to know so many wonderful children and their families! Outside of work, I enjoy shopping and spending time with friends and family, especially my son, Brayden and daughter, Vivian.
ABOUT ALI: I graduated from McDaniel College with a Bachelor’s in Spanish and moved to Boston to pursue my Masters in Education from Simmons College. I started my teaching career as a public school Spanish teacher and then welcomed the opportunity to move to a community-oriented setting. This year I’ll be floating at the ECP in the mornings, which will allow me to spend time with various age groups, and I consider it a privilege to help so many different children across WCCC learn and grow every day. Outside of work, I enjoy playing volleyball, watching movies and theater, and any and all Jodi Picoult books!
ABOUT STEPHEN: (BIO COMING SOON)
ABOUT JARED: I enjoy motivating children and teaching them while learning new activities and interacting with the WCCC community. My favorite WCCC activities are dodgeball, football, and “moon monster” tag. I also like to teach art, especially drawing. I’m looking forward to an awesome school year!
