As Pupil Services Director, Margelony oversees EASTCONN’s Psychological and Behavioral Services, Related Services ( AT, OT, PT, SLP), two K-12 clinical day treatment programs, Regional Transition Services and Woodstock Academy Cooperative.
“I’m excited about having the opportunity to continue supporting our special education schools and programs,” said Margelony. “It is, and always will be, about providing excellent programming for this amazing population of students.”
Margelony joined EASTCONN in April of 2013 as program director for the Northeast Regional Program (NRP) in Danielson, one of EASTCONN’s two Clinical Day Treatment programs.
Prior to joining EASTCONN, Margelony worked in East Hartford as a fourth-grade teacher, and later as an assistant principal at East Hartford Middle School. She also began her own consulting
