Advocate Staff Report

 State Representatives Jessica Giannino and Jeffrey Turco last week honored Tracy Pereira for being named the City of Revere’s 2022 Exceptional Latino Educator at the annual State of Latino Education event of Latinos for Education. The event took place at the State House in the Hall of Flags on Oct. 5, but the Reps delivered the citation in person to Pereira at the Beachmont School.

  Tracy Pereira was raised in Chelsea, Mass., in a Brazilian/American household. She graduated from UMass Lowell with a bachelor’s degree in Psychology (2016) and a Master of Science in Autism Studies (2018). She is a Board-Certified Behavior Analyst and Licensed Applied Behavior Analyst. Tracy has three years of experience working at Revere Public Schools. Tracy specializes in creating unique behavior intervention plans for students and consulting with teachers and staff on the implementation of those plans. In addition, Tracy uses her knowledge of the Portuguese language and Brazilian background to connect with incoming Portuguese-speaking students and families. As a behavior analyst and educator, Tracy is committed to providing the highest quality of care to the students.

  “It is an honor to be nominated for this award. I am so thankful to my colleagues for this recognition,” said Pereira.

  “Tracy is a shining example of an exemplary educator that Revere is so lucky to have,” said Representative Giannino. “I am proud to honor Tracy for her dedication to her students and her diligence as a professional in Revere public schools.”

  “It is with great honor to present the 2022 Exceptional Latino Educator for State of Latino Education to Tracy Pereira,” said Representative Turco. “Her unwavering commitment to her students and the Revere Public School system is inspiring. She is such a great representative of the people of Revere.”

  “The goal of the State of Latino Education Summit was to spotlight the critical role that Latino educators and leaders play in achieving educational equity for Latino students. There are many challenges that the COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated, but with educators like Tracy and leaders like Reps Giannino and Turco, we can tackle those challenges and chart a new path forward for Latino education,” said Latinos for Education CEO Amanda Fernandez.

  “The Latinx educators we are celebrating this month play a critical role in reaching educational equity for Latinx students,” said Latinos for Education’s New England Interim Executive Director, Dr. Jessica Huizenga. “The positive impact they are making on the future generations of our country does not go unnoticed.”
