Childhood/Special Education (Grades 1-6) - B.S./M.S. Ed.
Elementary school is a critical time to instill a love of learning and foster positive social experiences. Great teachers ignite an interest in children of all abilities and prepare them for academic success and a lifetime of learning.
Allison Maloney '12, Special education teacher at PS 294, The Walton School
I'm currently a fourth grade special education teacher at PS 294, and prior to that, taught students with severe and multiple disabilities at the John A. Coleman School, which is located within a residential pediatric center for children with chronic medical conditions. My experience at Manhattan College prepared me through real life experience, specialized instruction, and continuous support from each and every one of my professors. I continue to remain connected to the Manhattan College, as it continues to be my home away from home.
