Marjorie graduated from Boston University with a BS in Special Education. During her undergraduate studies, Marjorie worked on a research grant aimed at teaching underprivileged youth and youth with disabilities how to develop self-determination and self-advocacy skills. Upon graduating, Marjorie teamed up with a juvenile justice-centered law firm in Philadelphia where she worked with older youth in foster care, educating them on their educational rights. In addition, Marjorie educated professionals in the justice system on child development and worked with local legislators on a bill that would afford students in foster care a tuition waiver for state colleges and universities. 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. Marjorie has been a Special Education Coordinator in the Bronx for the past three years and is thrilled be part of such an intelligent and positive group of people here at PAVE!
