About Ms. D
Hello, my name is Rianne Delgadillo, but the kids just call me, Ms. D. I have five children. They are ages 25, 23, 19, 11, and almost 9. My husband is a kindergarten teacher, and we have been married for 14 years. I was a college student for a really long time. I have a B.S. in Child and Human Development, M.Ed in Early Childhood Education, Post-Graduate studies in Applied Behavioral Analysis, and am currently obtaining my doctorate the University of Illinois in Educational Policy, Organization, and Leadership with a focus on Diversity and Equity.
I have worked with children most of my adult life. I have been a court appointed advocate for youth in foster care. I have worked as a crisis counselor in a children’s homeless shelter working with children and their families. I have been a teacher at Head Start, worked 1:1 with children with autism, and worked with families in educational programs in inner city areas of Minneapolis and St. Paul. I was also a specialized foster home for many years, serving children with high medical or behavioral needs. These are all really different experiences that have brought me here to Broadmeadow with these amazing children for the past three years.
My job here at Broadmeadow is simply to be available to all students to help support positive relationships with one another, build their social skills, and to help resolve any peer conflicts they may have. Sometimes I work with groups of students to grow these abilities, and sometimes I work with the individual student. I firmly believe that we are more than the things we do on our worst days, and my job is to remind kids of that.
