Avis Pinkos




B.A. from Boston University


Avis began her teaching career at a middle school in Bedford-Stuyvesant, New York. New York was an exciting city, but she missed the Boston area and so decided to move back. She got a position teaching Spanish at Lexington High School. After a couple of years at Lexington, Avis chose to change jobs and went to work for the City of Boston. She spent the majority of my teaching career in Boston at both the middle school and elementary school levels. She has taught English as a Second Language and in bilingual classrooms.
