Marblehead Native Named Director of Skills+ Summer Program
Lauren Michaud, nee Sullivan, graduate of Marblehead High School and current Beverly resident, has been named the new Director of Skills+, Summer Study Skills Workshop at Landmark School. Skills+ is a two week, half day program designed for middle and high school students at public and private schools who need to develop executive function strategies and skills to apply across all academic subjects. All courses are taught by Landmark School teachers. Ms. Michaud is the second director of the program that has been offered for 10 summers at Landmark School.
“What excites me most about Skills+”, said Michaud, “is that students will have the chance to develop valuable lifelong study skills that will help them in school for years to come. The classes are small and students will have direct access to Landmark teachers who are experts in helping students improve their executive function, reading, and writing skills.” Michaud continues, “The program is not designed for students with learning disabilities, rather those kids that need help with organization, time management, planning and prioritizing, note taking, active reading, and more. These skills can be applied to all academic subjects through middle, high school, and even college.”
Michaud graduated from Marblehead High School in 2001, from Salem State College in 2005, and received her master’s degree from Simmons College in 2010. Michaud is currently living on the Landmark High School campus with her husband John who is a house parent there. They have two sons.
