We’d like to welcome Nelia Braga to the Technical Institute team!
Nelia is a graduate of Suffolk University and began her career path in education (without realizing it) tutoring fellow classmates in design while working in college. She was first employed with an education publishing company while pursuing a Master’s degree and then began teaching design at Somerville High School. It was then that she realized her goal wasn’t just to create & influence future designers, but to ensure each student was equipped with skills to succeed no matter what challenges they might face.
Most recently Nelia was the Director of Vocational Education at Everett High School and developed eight new Chapter 74 programs. She is excited to continue her career in vocational education with the Southeastern Regional School District and looks forward to working with the staff and students.
In her spare time Nelia enjoys photography, dance, and riding her horse Simba who occasionally competes.
