Tutor Carol Flionis thinks of Algonquin as a workplace and a home.

New reading tutor Carol Flionis does not only think of Algonquin as a workplace, but also a community that has welcomed her.

Flionis, who previously worked at two Worcester schools, first an elementary school and then Doherty Memorial High School, is happy with her experiences at Algonquin so far and describes it as an amazing community. Flionis received a masters degree in special education from Assumption University and is a trained reading teacher.

“I’ve felt very welcomed by my mentoring teachers, students and the administration as a whole,” Flionis said. 

Flionis splits her days at Algonquin and is on site working one-on-one with students Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. This split schedule took time getting used to. When Flionis is not in Algonquin, she works as a certified alcohol and drug counselor (CADC). She specializes in helping women in recovery. 

“My schedule can sometimes get confusing; not being in every day of the school week has made it a bit of an adjustment,” Flionis said. “On days that I’m not here [Algonquin], I work with women in recovery. Just like teaching, this is a very rewarding job.”

Outside of work, she often spends time with family and friends. Flionis also enjoys reading and writing. As a reading tutor, she loves her job because it consists of her passions. 

“I love working with high schoolers and seeing them improve their reading skills,” Flionis said.

Flionis draws from her previous role as a learning disabilities teacher at Doherty Memorial High School, where she had worked since 2008. 

“I had never worked at a high school before then. I loved it, ” Flionis said via email. “The role I had at Doherty has given me much experience for the job I have here.”

With the welcoming community, having passion for the job and knowing she’s helping students every day, Flionis said she knows this place is special, not only as a workplace, but as another home.
