Summer Principals Academy
The Education Leadership Program in the Department of Organization and Leadership
Madeline Bierbaum teaches Special Education at P723X@338X in the Bronx, a District 75 school that serves students with moderate to severe autism spectrum disorders and promotes communication and self-advocacy with the end goal of independence across all environments for all students. As part of the school’s Inquiry Team, she has worked on developing a data-driven writing curriculum and methods of data collection to measure functional communication across school environments. Madeline collaborated with the community school and SETSS provider to create and implement a mainstreaming program for special education students to participate in a general education setting, and she advises first-year teachers on students portfolio development, implementing the TEACCH model and data collection. Madeline hopes to develop an effective urban special education school focused on educational equality for students with all needs to prepare them to be integral members of their communities.
