Stefanie Silvers, Secretary

This year I will be celebrating thirty years working in education with students with disabilities and their families. I received a Master of Education in Psychological Counseling from Teachers College, Columbia University, and an Education Specialist degree in Special Education/Transition from the George Washington University. My true passion is assisting students to identify their barriers and provide assistance/resources/strategies to help them reach their academic goals. These barriers can be learning, physical, emotional, family, and/or economic. I also adjunct teach for St. Petersburg College’s in both the Human Services program and Social Sciences. The two main courses I teach are: “Survey of Developmental Disabilities” and “Building Stronger Families and Communities”. I have been teaching as an adjunct faculty member for St. Petersburg College for eight years and I have been working at the college serving students with disabilities since June 2004.

I love learning so I continue to work on my professional development such as St. Petersburg College’s Leadership program, graduation class of 2019. I attended AHEAD Leadership three-day management training. I have presented at the national AHEAD conference on technical standards and creating a formalized process for determining accommodations in clinical/lab settings. I continue to take graduate courses in different disciplines, such as school psychology, and currently exploring doctorate options and working towards becoming a licensed mental health counselor.
