Debbie Logiudice

Hi, my name is Debbie Logiudice. I feel very fortunate to join the Peabody School Community as the PK-5 Math Interventionist. I have been teaching in Cambridge Public Schools for 26 years. I taught 4th and 5th grade at the Baldwin School, specializing in grade level math and science for the last 15. Last year I had the opportunity to take the Baldwin one-year Math Interventionist position and loved it!  I was born and raised in Cambridge, went to Cambridge Public Schools, I still live in Cambridge and can be seen out and about walking my dog Vita. I am so excited to begin this new position as it is truly amazing working with all students to excel and find joy in mathematics!

When I am not teaching, I write children's books, play Dungeons and Dragons with my three children, and snuggle with my three adorable cats. I love traveling, riding my bike, and testing out new recipes.
