A reminder email was just sent about the Panorama Student Survey Grades K-2 will not be taking this survey, but instead your child(ren) teachers will be completing a teacher’s perception of student skills. Students in grades 3-12 will answer a short survey taking just a few minutes during the school day in the month of November. All opt-out decisions should be completed by the end of day Tuesday, October 25th. If you do not want your child(ren) to take this survey, please visit the Aspen family portal and check “no”. The directions as well as video support is located in the email. If you do not check no, your child will be included in the survey. If you have any questions about the SEL survey, please don’t hesitate to contact your child’s school principal or visit the Warwick Public Schools SEL website for more information.

Dr. Jeffrey Taylor Director of Technology
As the Director of Technology, I lead the department responsible for the acquisition, implementation, and maintenance of all of the informational, instructional, and operational technology throughout the school department. I am fortunate to be surrounded by the best in the business. We have a top notch group of technicians, clerks, and coordinators who strive each day to support all students, teachers, and families throughout the district. I began my career in the Warwick Public School Department over 20 years ago serving as a Math Teacher at Winman Middle School (then Junior High). From day one it was clear that Warwick was a special community. We have a highly talented group of educators, exceptional students, and caring families. After my time at Winman, I went on to serve as the Math Department Chair at Aldrich, and then as the Principal of Gorton Junior High School.
The students, families, colleagues, and community. I have genuinely enjoyed my time working with my many colleagues, both past and present. Together we have and continue to work to help support the students and families of Warwick.  When outside of work, you can usually find me at an ice rink or a lacrosse field cheering on my daughters, both of who play ice hockey and lacrosse. Additionally, I like to stay active teaching, serving as an adjunct professor of Mathematics at CCRI. I also volunteer with various youth organizations, and serve as a vice-chair for the board overseeing middle school sports for the state.

Kimberly ruggieri director of human resources
What is your role at Warwick Public Schools? I am the Director of Human Resources for the district.  Me and my fabulous team are responsible for staffing the district and providing the necessary guidance and support of our valued employees.   What motivates you to work for Warwick Public Schools? I am born and bred Warwick.  My children, my husband, and I are all proud graduates of this school district.  I have great pride in our community and genuinely care about the staff and students.  I spent the first part of my Warwick career in the classroom as a Teacher Assistant caring for the students.  Now that my focus in this role has shifted to the staff side of operations, I have been able to apply the same level of caring and support to the adults so they can provide services to the students.
What is your favorite thing about Warwick? I love the sense of pride and community here in Warwick.  There are so many dedicated and talented people in all areas - WISE, WTU, Admin, and subs. The dedication and care for student learning here are remarkable. I have met so many amazing people who are lifelong friends.  I have been able to grow both personally and professionally in every role I have played in this district.   How do you enjoy spending your time outside of work? Spending time with my family and friends definitely tops the list!  We are currently wedding planning for my daughter which is lots of fun.  You will find me on a cruise ship whenever I can be, or at the bowling alley with my husband.  Let’s not forget about baking cookies, a favorite past-time!
*Update 10.13.22: for details on how to opt out for surveys in Aspen, please see directions and a video tutorial that was sent via email. Thank you!

Dr. Anne Siesel, Assistant Director of Curriculum, Federal Programs, and Grants
My role is to develop and lead the Title programs in the district including Title I, Title II, Title III, and Title IV-A.  I am also responsible for the McKinney-Vento families and homeschool families.    I have worked in education for 43 years and in Warwick for 15 years.  My motivation has always been the children.  I want to do my best for the children in Warwick.
The people that I work with are phenomenal. They are hard-working and have the best interests of children at heart.  I look forward to working with them every day.   Outside of work I enjoy going on walks with my dogs, reading, and going to jazz and art festivals.
