Madeline Nieves - Parent Coordinator (212) 675-7926 ext. 2082
Hi, my name is Madeline Nieves, I am the parent coordinator for 721M. I love what I do because I’m the liaison between school, parent and child. My job is to get as much parents involved with the school and keep parents inform of what going on with the student and build a relationship where the parent and school can come together and help the student.
My main focus is to keep communication open, that's why I want you to feel free to contact me via phone or stop by my office at any time. I also, invite you to come to our meetings where all the parents talk free and get together and go over things that are happening at 721M. Together, parent, and school will make the difference with need to make our students future bright. Here a little bit about me. I've been employed for 28 years at 721M. I started as a school aide for two years, then as a family worker for 14 years.
Working as a family worker has allowed me to really get to know my students and their families. They say the best way to help someone is to really understand what they are going through. I've had the privilege, to work close with the families who had needed my help. They trust that I have the best interest for their child. In 2003, I've start working as a parent coordinator and has allowed me to really help my parents.
The many ways I help my parents and students are:
provide information, resources and support for families to support their children such as services provided to students by the D.O.E and the school. Work with school, staff and district and network – based family support staff to address and resolve specific parent concerns.
Wishing you and your children a successful school year!
