Meet Your Assistant Area Manager

Hello! My name is Nicole Resendes, I am the Assistant Area Manager for Somerset, MA, and Portsmouth, RI. I started with the company as a Group Leader and was promoted to Site Director and am now the Operations Specialist. AlphaBEST has assisted me in finding my passion of working with children. The values AlphaBEST embodies have not only inspired me to grow within the company but to further my education. I am currently working towards my degree in Elementary Education at Bristol Community College. As Operations Specialist, I enjoy working closely with my students to help ensure their interests are creatively implemented into our enriched curriculum. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my daughter, my boyfriend, and my family. We live on waterfront property and enjoy our time boating, relaxing on the docks, and feeding the ducks, geese, and birds.

Meet Your Regional Director

Prior to joining AlphaBEST, Adriane spent 22 years in elementary classrooms, district leadership roles, and serving as a mentor to new teachers. Today, at AlphaBEST, she supports all aspects of operations and growth across her regions, living AlphaBEST’s mission, vision, and core values in all aspects of her career. In her spare time, Adriane enjoys fitness, baking with her daughter, and belting out the occasional song at karaoke.
