Meet Our Special Education Advocate:

Mary Annese
Mary Annese

As your child's representative, Mary will bridge the gap between the schools and you, the families.  By doing this, she lays down the framework for a successful partnership that will benefit all. Her goal is to ensure the child's needs are met and to join the IEP team in searching for ways to make this a constant reality within the parameters of the educational system.

Mary is a licensed, certified teacher with a wide range of experience as a special education teacher. She received her Bachelor of Science degree from Long Island University and a Master's in Special Education from Adelphi University. She's taught children with different learning abilities for over 15 years in grades pre-K through eighth grade, both in general education and special education settings. She is highly qualified to consult, review, and draft the Individualized Education Program (IEP) that will be your child's educational blueprint for many years to come. Additionally, she will attend and support you at your child's IEP meetings. Her goal is to partner with you to help your child reach his/her potential.
