Grace May Ph.D., Associate Dean, College of Education, Jennifer ZmirskiJen Zmirski, B.S. '11, M.S., joins Seton Hall this Fall as an instructor in the College of Education and Human Services' Special Education Transition Certificate program. According to Professor Zmirski, special education transition is a field that "prepares students with disabilities for life beyond the classroom…a field that takes the teaching methods and strategies that you use in a traditional classroom and applies them to real life in the community."

The College of Education and Human Services is pleased to have one of its own graduates teaching in the Special Education Transition Certificate program. As an undergraduate, Professor Zmirski received the Career Center's Experiential Education Award for accomplishments in her student teaching placement. In 2012, Professor Zmirski earned a M.S. in Rehabilitation Psychology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Currently, Professor Zmirski is a transition special education teacher and job developer at Madison East High School in Madison, Wisconsin. She explains that as a transition specialist, her role is to "prepare students with disabilities for life beyond the classroom. The work you do with students in a transition program determines the course of their future—seeking out employment, applying to tech school, moving into a supported living arrangement."

The program is aligned with national special education standards by the Council for Exceptional Children (CEC) and certificates are awarded upon completion of a four-course, entirely online 12 credit program.
