With almost 4 decades of professional experience teaching elementary school first in Bethpage, Long Island and later in Virginia Beach, VA, Regina has certainly proven herself as an accomplished professional and expert in the field. As a dynamic, results-driven leader, Regina has demonstrated success not only with her teaching career, but also with her poetry and co-authoring her children’s book series. Regina and co-author/illustrator Carolyn Royer Spencer spoke from personal experience in their writing. Their two recently published works in this series focus on the topic of bullying, a growing epidemic that is haunting our schools, worksites, online media, pretty much everywhere. Regina’s published works are an excellent resource for anyone that works with children especially teachers, guidance counselors, parents, grandparents etc. In addition to writing, Regina is a regular invited speaker on radio interviews about her anti-bullying books, and host anti-bullying assemblies and readings at local schools. It is her sincere wish to show how bullying affects all ages and how destructive it can be to an individual’s physical and psychological well-being. Regina hopes that her work can open up dialogue on the problem of bullying, which has become an epidemic in our society.
Regina received her Master’s from Hofstra University and her Bachelor of Science degree in Education from St. John’s University. The President of IAOTP, Stephanie Cirami, stated “Choosing Regina for this award was an easy decision for our panel to make. She is talented, humble, gracious, and brilliant at what she does. We felt she would make an amazing asset to our organization and feel that when it comes to bullying, it is an international problem that needs to be addressed and should be given an international platform. It was great to spend time with her at the gala and cannot wait to celebrate her again at this year’s gala.”
