Marjorie Cass studied Special Education at Boston University. Upon graduating, she teamed up with a juvenile justice-centered law firm in Philadelphia where she worked with local legislators on a bill that would afford students in foster care a tuition waiver for college. Marjorie then moved to New York City to join Teach for America. She earned her Masters Degree in Childhood and Special Education from Pace University while working in the Bronx as a Special Education Teacher and a Founding Special Education Coordinator. Marjorie feels fortunate to be at PAVE and to work with the families and students of Red Hook, as well as dedicated and talented staff. She is excited to continue to support teachers and scholars in her role as Academic Dean, as well as to start her new role as Principal in Residence. When the time comes for PAVE to expand to another neighborhood in Brooklyn, Marjorie feels honored and excited to be a part of it.
