  |   Aaron School, High School, News, Special Programs

Adam Moro is the Director of Clinical Services and Dean of Students at the 30th Street campus. Adam oversees the Mental Health Staff (Social Workers, School Counselors, and School Psychologists) and the related services curriculum for students in grades 8-12. Adam also works closely with all faculty on student behavior and classroom management.

 

Adam started at Aaron School 9 years ago as the Integrated Services Coordinator and School Psychologist. Given the High School had just begun that year, Adam worked very closely with the rest of the administration on overall program development, the related service delivery model, and staffing. Adam also worked directly with the students providing counseling services. Following the 2011-2012 school year, Adam took on the position of Assistant Principal/Director of Clinical Services at the 30th Street campus, and continued to work closely with students, faculty, families, and the new administration to enhance what had now become the Aaron School K-12 program. In 2014, Adam became of the Dean of Students, while continuing to work with the Mental Health Staff as the Director of Clinical Services. Adam has been fortunate to have been a part of the administration in many capacities, and continues to be excited about Aaron School’s long term future.

 

Adam has experience in public and private educational settings, and has worked with students in kindergarten through age 21. Prior to Aaron School, Adam worked for the Cooke Center for Learning and Development as a School Psychologist. Adam provided counseling services and taught social skills classes to students in grades K-12. Additionally, Adam served as a Co-Chair to the Psychology Department, and also worked closely with the Transition Coordinator on exploring options for students once they graduated from the Cooke Program.

 

Adam earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from Binghamton University and a Master of Science degree in School/Community Psychology from the College of New Rochelle.

 

Outside of the school environment, Adam spends much of his time with his wife and two sons ages 7 and 4. He also enjoys watching and playing many sports, and currently competes in Racquetball Tournaments in NY and NJ.
