Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Andrea (Andi) Raffaele
My education background includes a bachelor's degree in special education (PK-9) with a focus on Learning Disabilites from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. After teaching in the Milwaukee area for 17 years, I moved to St. Paul and began volunteering at Crossroads in 2010, which led me to teaching Intersession and Extended Day for Learning. I was also a guest teacher in St. Paul for a few years before being hired as an Intervention Specialist at Crossroads.
As an Intervention Specialist, I collaborate with the classroom teachers to provide academic support to students in grades 1-5 mainly in the area of reading.
