Technology Integration Specialist (SPOC)

I was born and raised in the Bushwick section of Brooklyn, New York! I am very proud of where I come from because it has changed so much over the years and has become the place to be. Today I live in Glendale, Queens but visit home frequently to see my mother and friends. I went to Christ the King Regional High School in Middle Village. My college life has been a wild adventure to say the least! I started in John Jay College, but left after I reevaluated my life. Soon after I went to LaGuardia CC where I majored in Early Childhood Education. My next stop was City College where I majored in Psychology and minored in Sociology. After finally making the decision of where I wanted to be in 20 years I went to Hunter College where I received my Masters in Childhood Education 1-6. A few years later I went to Grand Canyon University where I received my second Masters in Technology Education. I have worked for the NYCDOE for ten years. The one thing I love most about my job is the children. I love teaching them new ideas and concepts, and I love making connections and bonds with them. My free time is spent with my wife and kids doing anything recreational. I also love attending live sporting events frequently and going to wrestling events with my friends from high school.

CHRISTIN RAIO

Data & Assessment Specialist

I grew up in Long Island, NY. I attended St. John's University in Queens for both my undergraduate and graduate degrees. I have obtained a license in Elementary Education, grades 1-6, and a Master's Degree in Teaching Children with Disabilities, grades 1-6. I have worked for the NYCDOE for ten years. I love being able to help children learn and develop throughout the year, both academically and socially. The most rewarding part of my job is the glowing look on a student's face when he/she has mastered a concept that they once struggled with. In my free time, I love to spend time with my family and friends, especially my two nieces. I also enjoy cooking, going out to eat, reading, watching movies as well as sports. I love taking long walks with my dog, Kayla.

REGINA CAPOWSKI

I grew up with two brothers in a suburb of Buffalo, NY, called Orchard Park. I received my Bachelor’s Degree at SUNY Fredonia, where I majored in Childhood Education, Modern Languages & Literature, and Spanish. I then obtained my Master’s Degree from Teachers College at Columbia University. There I majored in Bilingual/Bicultural Education. Most recently I earned my School Building Leader license through CUNY Baruch College. This is my eleventh year working for the NYCDOE.

I am proud to have been a part of the PS 330Q family since the day it opened in 2010. One of the many reasons I love my job is because every day is different from the last, and I never know what to expect. Nothing makes me happier than spending a day surrounded by children. I truly believe a school has the power to change lives, and I feel passionate about making the most positive impact I can on the lives of the PS 330Q families. I feel lucky that I am constantly surrounded by smiling, loving children at PS 330Q. I look forward to seeing our students each day and the excitement and enthusiasm they bring to the building.

A born social butterfly, my life outside of school is spent enjoying life with my family, friends, and husband. I love to travel to new places and experience cultures different from my own. I also enjoy reading, exploring New York City, and relaxing at the beach
