Daniel Russo '07, Principal of The Walton Avenue School PS 294
In my first few years of teaching, this program allowed me to balance the demands of my new career with every teacher's inherent desire to be a lifelong learner. The ongoing cycle of learning, applying, and reflecting accelerated my professional growth far beyond any other teacher development model. In my current role as principal of PS 294, I am able to support my special education teachers' career ladder by meeting each of their individual needs and accessing the strategies of the graduate program to continually push them to be their best.
