UMass Lowell History Alum Spotlight: Neil Oliveria ('19)
As we resume classes, we are reminded of alum Neil Oliveria's passion for teaching history to high school and middle school students. In 2020-2021, he taught "World History" at Woburn High School. The following academic year, he taught "Ancient History" and "Civics" at Haverhill's Consentino Middle School.
Since January 2023, he has worked full-time at Lawrence High School, where he teaches eleventh graders "US History II." Neil loves working with the students in Lawrence. Among the subjects he finds most rewarding to teach is the Civil Rights Movement, since so many of his students can relate to it.
