Breglio joins LHS guidance staff

Sign language, wine tasting, documentary filmmaking and photography are only a few of the interests of the guidance department’s newest addition, eleventh grade counselor, David Breglio.

Breglio’s experience in education falls far from short. He’s worked at three different guidance jobs throughout Western Massachusetts, including King Philip Regional High School in Wrentham, Mass, Peabody Veterans Memorial High School in Peabody, Mass., and Canton High School in Canton, Mass.

But how does Ludlow High School compare? “So far so good,” says Breglio, “ although I’ve been stuck in my office more than I’d like to be.”

Breglio’s experiences have varied at the several schools he’s worked. “I’ve worked in a group for kids on probation,” he said. “It was long hard hours.”

And even though at times he had to physically restrain students, he said he enjoyed his year helping kids. “But one year is plenty,” he added.

Breglio attended Suffolk University in Boston, Mass., where he received a masters of education in school counseling, as well as a bachelor of arts in psychology at Clark University in Worcester, Mass.

Breglio has a passion for lacrosse and was recruited by 15 different colleges to play. He ultimately settled on Clark.

LHS’ Ping Pong Club has caught Breglio’s eye, and he hopes to get a chance to check it out. Aside from Ping Pong Club Breglio has an interest in the athletic department. Breglio mentioned his interest in coaching basketball to Athletic Director Tim Brillo if any spots opened up. And if the smallest chance opens up for Ludlow having a Lacrosse team, Breglio will be right there helping orchestrate it.

When Breglio gets out of work he looks forward to going home to see his Dachshund Beans. But that’s not all, Breglio has season tickets to Boston College football, has recently gotten a motorcycle, and has begun taking a photography class. Breglio has no fear when it comes to trying something new.

“A lot of people come in to high school with a certain notion,” he says. “Take risks with school and future planning. You can always say you gave it your best.”
