Message from new Executive Director ~October, 2013
As the new Executive Director of the Central Massachusetts Special Education Collaborative, I want to express my sincere appreciation to the Board of Directors and Search Committee for their confidence in selecting me to lead CMSEC in fulfilling the vision of providing all students with the opportunity and support to reach the highest possible standard, achievement and level of independence.
In these first few weeks of my tenure, I have been increasingly impressed with the level of professionalism, compassion and dedication of all staff, and their commitment to supporting educational practices which lead to increased student success. My vision is to capitalize on the strengths within each program and collectively share what works best, along with a team effort of meeting program challenges together. There is no doubt in my mind, that CMSEC will be recognized as one of the best educational entities in Massachusetts as we build on our cohesive initiatives under the Collaborative umbrella. Thank you.
