Concordia College Announces Dr. Stephanie Squires as Director of New Master of Science Program in Childhood Special Education PDF Print Email


July 20, 2011:  Concordia College announced the appointment of Dr. Stephanie Squires as the new program Director of Master of Science in Special Education; Vicki Ford Professorship in Special Education.

Coming from the College of New Rochelle, Dr. Squires brings a wealth of experience and leadership in the area of special education.  She worked for 14 years in the field and holds a Ph.D. in special education from the University of New Orleans.

In addition to her teaching experience, Dr. Squires has coordinated a number of federal and state grants in special education and has served as a consultant to school districts in several states.  Dr. Squires has served as presenter and panelist at conferences across the country, presenting lectures, papers, and films on such topics as bullying and literacy strategies for learners with autism.

"It is an honor to join Concordia College at such an exciting time in its history," said Dr. Squires.  "Working with our talented faculty, I know that our new special education program will be among the best and will serve our region well."

The program is funded by the Vicki Ford Professorship of Special Education, supported through contributions from Bronxville residents Vicki and Si Ford, who are dedicated to the success of Concordia's programs and facilities, including the college's OSilas Gallery for fine arts.  "Special education and learning differences have been important interests of mine for many, many years," said Vicki Ford.  "Si and I are very happy to share in Concordia's plans to offer graduate teaching degrees in the field.  This is a significant event for Concordia and for the quality of special education instruction in the region."

Concordia College is currently accepting applications for the fall semester for the Master of Science Program, which will train teachers certified in an area other than students with disabilities to teach special education students in grades 1-6.  It is a two-year part-time program leading to an M.S. Ed. degree.  The program combines current theory with practice in the field of special education, offering instruction on classroom management, instructional and assistive technology, development, literacy and mathematics instruction, collaboration, and research in special education.

"Certification in the field is of value to both special education teachers and all classroom teachers, as students with special learning needs and styles are increasingly mainstreamed in the classroom," said Dr. Christine Rowe, dean of the Division of Professional Studies at Concordia.

Bronxville Public Library

Bronxville Public Library

The Bronxville Public Library traces its origins back to 1875, when it was a small lending library housed in a room attached to the “Bronxville Model School.” The Library was officially chartered in 1906 and moved into the Village Hall Building. The needs of the library grew with the town and, in 1942, a new standalone building was erected, which is where the Library is today. Over the years, the Library was renovated and expanded to meet the needs of the community.

The Library has wonderful resources for adults and children and offers a comfortable and relaxing environment. The Library also houses a fine art collection, consisting principally of Bronxville painters and sculptors.

The Library offers special events, art exhibitions, and programs for adults, young adults and children. The schedule of events for adults and young adults is posted at

All events are open to the public, unless otherwise indicated.
