St. Joseph’s College is set to host a panel next month about new trends in special education.
The panel discussion, featuring six SJC alumni, will touch upon various aspects of special education, including special education reform; process for developing Individualized Education Programs, or IEPs; types of disabilities; and certifications, training, jobs, salaries, and work life balance.
Mary Buckley Teatum, a child studies instructor and a St. Joseph’s College Class of 1970 graduate, will moderate the panel that will be held Oct. 22 in SJC Brooklyn’s student lounge from 6 to 8 p.m.
The panel will also include special education teachers Danielle Endes ’13, M.A. ’16 and Andrea Rosado ’08, clinical psychologist Elizabeth Williams Auricchio ’63, Ph.D., disability civil rights attorney Mary J. Goodwin-Oquendo ’06 and middle school dean Atiba Theophille ’08.
The discussion, which is open to the public and free to attend, will be followed by a networking reception and in-person résumé-review session by the Office of Career Preparation and Professional Development.
Advanced registration is required to attend. Reserve your place at alumni.sjcny.edu/Panel-SpecEd.
