Next Reunion in 2006. Got news? Tap out a note to magazine@bates.edu! Jean Gudaitis Tarricone, a learning disabilities specialist at the Landmark School in Beverly, Mass., was profiled in the Danvers Herald. Author of The Landmark Method for Teaching Writing offering “methods to help liberate kids, concrete methods for teachers to follow,” she works in the school and as part of the school’s aggressive outreach program to help learning-disabled students. “The rewards are so great,” she says. “I could get a student in the ninth grade who can’t write a sentence. Four years later, they’re going to college and realizing their dreams.” Jean has a part-time schedule that allows time with husband Lou and Nathan (7), Zachary (5 1/2), and Anna (4).
