After working with for years as Plum Borough school district’s supervisor of special education, Cheryl Levin decided to spend her retirement from the public school system as Pace School's new program director.
According to Levin, “I have always had the highest respect for the Pace School organization and its model of service delivery to students with significant emotional and academic needs. When I was given the opportunity to work at Pace, I was lucky enough to be ready in my career for a new challenge—to work for the first time in the private sector to make a difference for children.”
Pace School serves children with emotional challenges and needs surrounding issues that face students diagnosed on the autistic spectrum. It is located in Churchill.
Levin has a background in special education and administration. Levin spent 10 years as an elementary principal and four years as the special education supervisor and student services director. Before stepping into administrative shoes, Levin was a practicing special education teacher for more than 11 years, spanning all grade levels as well as three states.
Levin attended Duquesne University where she earned her degree in special education.
After wrapping up her first month in her new position at Pace School as the program director, Levin said, “I am honored to have been given this opportunity and am already working hard with the fine Pace team, to make that difference for these kids and families. When I was a public school administrator, I was confident that Pace could provide comprehensive services to these complex children in a meaningful way. I am proud to be part of the team now.”
