Welcome Eric!

We are excited to have a new UConn intern staring soon who you will probably see around Kids Cooperate. Here is a little about him.

Hello, my name is Eric Newman. I am a Master’s degree student at the University of Connecticut in Special Education. I grew up in Connecticut andlove the different seasons here. I played soccer and enjoy snowboarding. Now, I play the guitar and recently started bouldering. I was honored by becoming an Eagle Scout in High School. After graduating with my bachelor’s degree from UConn in 2009, I taught English throughout Europe and Asia until 2014. Since coming back to the USA, I have learned so much about students with disabilities in my UConn program. The joy of teaching them is like no other. I know the needs of children with autism are diverse and desire to learn as much as I possibly can.

I am really looking forward to my internship at Kids Cooperate and working with Mr. Weintraub over the following 10 weeks.
