When Mrs. Carreiro was younger, she always wanted to have a career as a teacher or helping others. After graduating from New Bedford High School, she went to Bristol Community College for an Associate Degree in Office Administration, Lesley University for a Bachelor’s Degree in Sociology, and American International College for a Master’s Degree in
Educational Leadership. Her most professional achievement that she is proud of is being the first in her family to attend college and obtain a Master’s degree.
One of her personal goals is to join her husband’s medical mission alongside him. When she isn’t working, she is traveling and visiting places worldwide or having fun spending time with family and friends. This summer, Mrs. Carreiro spent some time in Florida and visited European places with her family such as London, Spain, Prague, and Budapest. Her biggest motivation is her children and the students she works with to be a positive role model and influence daily. She is influenced by her parents, who immigrated to the United States to provide a better future for their family. Mrs. Carreiro learned from them to never give up on dreams and to work hard to make them a reality. In 10 years, she envisions herself retiring and traveling more.
