About the Presenter: Polly Bath “is a widely recognized behavior expert in New England schools and beyond. She consults to and trains administrators, teachers, and paraprofessionals on how to manage and change difficult school behavior. She has gained her reputation most especially by teaching educators how to change the difficult behaviors that have been the most resistant to change. 
     
Her strategies are effective in the inclusive general education classroom as well as in special education settings. Her successful techniques come from her extensive experiences as a teacher of students with emotional and behavioral disorders, plus her extended work as the New England consulting associate of the late behavior legend Dr. Mike Mezzocchi.

Presenter: Marie A. Ardito, Retired Teacher. “For 31 years, I was one of you, an educator. I’m here to prepare you to become like me, an informed retired educator.” Marie Ardito taught in the public schools of Massachusetts for 31 years. In preparation for her retirement, she began to study the Massachusetts retirement system. She was largely responsible for the research, which prompted the MTRS, the Massachusetts legislature and both teachers’ unions to recognize the grave injustices that existed in the retirement formula. She is an active member of the “grass roots’ group of teachers responsible for the passage of four pieces of legislation involving retirement benefits. Marie currently serves as Information Coordinator of the Massachusetts Retirees United. Her knowledge and understanding of the Massachusetts retirement system as well as her respect for educators, is evidenced in her presentation. Marie is both an informational and inspirational speaker, and places emphasis on the emotional, psychological, and practical aspects of financial preparation for retirement.
