Irene Kszepka-Daly All Library

After graduating from Boston University with an undergraduate degree in English education and a Master's in reading education, I began my teaching career at Breed Junior High School in Lynn, MA, in 1993. Twenty plus years later I'm still at Breed; it's a middle school now, and I've served here in many capacities.

I began my first year in the reading department as a Title One reading teacher, I next taught grade eight English language arts for eight years, and then transitioned to work as both a reading teacher and librarian.  While working here at Breed, I earned another Masters in education from Salem State University in Library Media Studies.

I have played many roles outside of the classroom; I've coached, been cluster leader, advised various club, run the school store, and edited the yearbook.

Each and every day I strive to live up to our school's motto and "bring out the best

El Heroe Perdido (The Lost Hero)

Cuando Jason despierta, sabe que algo va muy mal. Está en un autobús camino de un campamento para chicos problemáticos. Y le acompañan Piper —una muchacha (bastante guapa, por cierto) que dice que es su novia— y el que parece ser su mejor amigo, Leo...
Pero él no recuerda nada: ni quién es ni cómo ha llegado allí. Pocas horas después, los tres descubrirán no solo que son hijos de dioses del Olimpo, sino además que su destino es cumplir una profecía de locos: liberar a Hera, diosa de la furia, de las garras de un enemigo que lleva mucho tiempo planeando su venganza...
