So much is in store for you at Lesley University! Now that you’ve been accepted, RSVP for our exclusive celebration for new undergraduate and Threshold students for Saturday, April 27.

Kathleen Linnane

Adjunct Professor

I have been teaching part time at Lesley for fifteen years. With support from Ben Mardell and the technology department at Lesley, I developed and taught an online version of the course: Observation, Documentation and Assessment.  Earlier, I developed, with the guidance of Mary Mindess, a course: Literacy and the Arts for Young Children

I am the Assistant Director at Infant Toddler and Children’s Center in Acton. ITC is a childcare center supporting 170 families. I supervise and support a faculty of 35 teachers as they build relationships, develop curriculum, design environments and work on and implement assessment and documentation. I work closely with parents and contribute to our center’s monthly newsletter. I have supervised many student teachers from Lesley University, Fitchburg State, and Wheelock College at our center.

I have presented numerous workshops/trainings through the Early Childhood Advisory Council and other area teacher professional development agencies. I have presented at the NAEYC conferences on professional development, environment design, curriculum development and parent support. I have also sat on many panels for early childhood education presentations/conversations in the area and at the Boulder Journey School in Colorado.

In the past, I have contributed to Exchange Magazine and Young Children Magazine and developed curriculum for Early Childhood textbooks as well as a variety of articles for the childcare center newsletter where I work. Earlier in my career I taught kindergarten in the Arlington Public Schools.
