Joanne McDonnell, M.Ed.

“Beyond mastering the content of what they intend to teach in the classroom, our graduate candidates are practitioners that value and apply the principles of Universal Design for Learning to meet the needs of all students. Following the completion of a Master of Education degree from Anna Maria College, graduates have the education, professional dispositions, and experience to successfully collaborate with all groups, in any given school community, while still honoring themselves as a professional and the students they serve.”
