BFA’s Newest Addition: Randi Lynch

BFA’s Special Education Staff Member Randi Lynch

Randi Lynch is the newest addition to BFA’s special education staff. She previously worked at BFA as a speech therapist, or SLP, but took a break and is back this year. 

Lynch received her Bachelor of Arts degree at UVM in Communication Sciences and Disorders and her Bachelor of Science Degree in Behavioral Psychology. She originally wanted to be a speech therapist. After obtaining her Special Education Degree, Lynch worked in Sheldon School as a middle school special educator for four years. 

Special educators’ responsibilities are to help remove physical, cognitive, emotional and intellectual barriers that stop students with learning disabilities from thriving in the classroom. 

“This involves a lot of collaboration with students, classroom teachers, parents and other specialists to develop goals and establish accommodations to help them be more successful. In BFA’s Community Integration Program, we have a focus on life skills to help students develop skills that will allow them to be more independent after they graduate from high school,” Lynch said.

Through college, Lynch worked her way up in grocery retail starting as a cashier and eventually the store manager. She worked in New York, Vermont and New Hampshire. 

Lynch decided to come back to BFA because “the people here are very student focused and I love the challenge of working with students with diverse needs,” Lynch said.

Lynch is looking forward to a new year with exceptional students and supportive colleagues.
