Mrs. Filkins worked as a Special Education teacher for Hillcrest Educational Centers in Lenox, Colegrove Elementary School in North Adams, and Herberg Middle School in Pittsfield. She also worked for several years as a real estate agent for Century 21 Franklin Street. 

Andrea was a passionate person with a joyous disposition. She was abundantly kind and generous with an equally clever, and quick-witted personality. As a true enthusiast of the arts, Andrea enjoyed the theater, singing, art collecting, antiquing, and was a natural storyteller.

She earned a bachelors degree in Education and a Master's Degree in Applied Technology that she applied while teaching special needs children at Hilcrest Educational Center, Colberg School in North Adams and earlier in her Career at Herberg Middle School. Andrea  loved working in the special education field and was dedicated to her students success.
