Mrs. Manickas
Welcome to Mrs. Manickas's Differentiation Instruction


I am the Differentiation Instructor for math, writing, and reading at Aitken School.  My role is to identify (along with the classroom teachers) students’ individual learning strengths, needs, and interests.  Once identified, students either come to me in small groups or I go into the classrooms, where I deliver instruction that is personalized by content, process, and/or product. 

At the beginning of the year, I typically provide opportunities for students to review and practice previously learned skills.  As the school year begins, classroom teachers and I will be forming differentiation groups.  

If you have any questions about what is going on with differentiation, please contact me at (508) 336-5230 or email me at  Also, read my short article in the Aitken To Know each month to find out what’s happening with differentiation.
