Marie Moran – Coordinator of PPS/Special Education Elementary
Marie Moran received her Bachelor of Science from SUNY New Paltz in Elementary Education, a Master of Science from Hofstra University in Special Education, and Advanced Graduate Certificates in School Building Leadership and School District Leadership from Queens College. Prior to joining the Middle Country Central School District, she served as the special education coordinator at a K – 8 school located in Queens, New York. It is there she began her teaching career as a special education teacher in an Integrated Co-Teaching classroom.
She believes that children demonstrate their greatest potential when provided with early access to high quality research-based instruction, when educators maintain high expectations for all learners, and when all children have access to general curriculum in the least restrictive environment. Her passion for special education was cultivated through her interest in developing curriculum in a manner that supports the needs of all learners.
She is excited to join the Middle Country Central School District as a Coordinator of Pupil Personal Services/Special Education. She is committed to the district’s mission, “to empower and inspire all students” through special education programming as developed through data-analysis and collaboration with families and staff.
