Vincent has always had a love for problem solving and helping others, spending time solving sudoku puzzles and playing strategy games, tutoring other students, and volunteering at the local library while growing up in Yonkers, NY. These have served to drive Vincent in his professional career, supporting educators, multilingual learners and at-risk students with educational organizations and most recently with Trinity Education Group.
After graduating with degrees in Mathematics and Computer Engineering from New York University’s Dual Degree program, Vincent returned to his hometown to manage the on-site operations and provide tutoring with Math and SAT Prep for a branch of the New York State Education Department’s Liberty Partnerships Program at Iona College which aims to provide support for at-risk students in districts across New York State. He also volunteered for the city’s PTA and at the Yonkers Board of Education, which eventually led him to a full-time position in the Language Acquisition Department in the Yonkers BOE.
After getting a crash course in Title III regulations and NYS Commissioner’s Regulations-Part 154, Vincent helped to create new systems and reorganize the processes for the Language Acquisition Department to better manage and assist Multilingual and World Language learners and staff across the district. He then continued this work with the New York City Department of Education in the Division of English Language Learners and Student Support before joining Trinity Education Group in May 2019.
Vincent’s experience in a variety of district implementations including project management for school turnaround grants and bilingual summer programs have allowed Vincent to become familiar with all aspects of district administration, particularly in the field of English Learners and bilingual programming. It is this experience and his desire to see that all students, regardless of age, receive equitable education and opportunities that lets him better collaborate on projects with education leaders and administrators to allow them to provide meaningful solutions.
