“If a Child Loves Learning, They Will be Happy”

WestportNow.com Image
A team of two entrepreneurial educators, Michele Isenberg (l) and Dawn Matera, who mentor children and adults with learning disabilities, told the Westport Rotary Club Tuesday that “if a child can love to learn, they will be happy the rest of their lives.” The couple stressed that “everyone learns differently and that our society tends to assess children against a more limited traditional measure”—often outside the skill area of those who frequently possess above-average intelligence. Matera and Isenberg, both certified teachers, are the founders of the Westport-based A Way to Learn, LLC, an organization created to meet the growing need for educational support services. The organization’s Web site, www.awaytolearn.net, details its philosophy and programs. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for WestportNow.com

“It was a good Fairfield Ludlowe team,” Staples coach Dan Woog said. “It’s a big step forward for us. I wasn’t pleased with the first half, but they stepped up in the second half, which was nice to see.”

The Wreckers move to 6-0-0, while Fairfield Ludlowe (3-1-2) suffered its first loss of the year. Staples travels to Stamford on Thursday for a 4 p.m. match.

Compo Beach Resident’s Return Makes Headlines

His Compo Beach area neighbors have known about it for some time, but the move back into the Westport neighborhood by former American International Group (A.I.G.) executive Joseph Cassano made headlines today.WestportNow.com Image
Joseph Cassano: back home. File photo

Cassano, who was closely associated with A.I.G.’s collapse, “recently slipped back into the United States” where he faces investigations by the FBI and other agencies, Reuters reported.

The news agency, in a lengthy report on Cassano’s move, did not say when the son of a Brooklyn, N.Y. police officer returned to Westport, where he has been a registered voter since 1995. But neighbors told WestportNow late last month they noticed his return when they saw a moving van outside his home.

WestportNow, respecting his privacy, did not report his return. Cassano until recently had been living in London where he had run A.I.G. Financial Products.
