Breanne Pfeiffer Novak ’11, G’17 shares “I studied at Saint Rose for my undergrad, ’07-’11, and graduated duel certified in ECE/SED. After that I began my SPED journey as a SPED teacher in Schenectady at Parsons Early Learning Center. I then went back to St. Rose for my grad school and after starting my family, finally graduated with my Masters in Curriculum and Instruction in 2018 with both of my children present to see me walk across the stage (very proud moment). During this time I made the move to Story Place Preschool in Castleton, New York. I started as a SPED teacher in an integrated classroom. After becoming pregnant with my third child, I came back to Story Place but this time in a Special Education Supervisor position. My 5 year plan is to not only watch my three beautiful children continue to grow (Brody, 9, Camden, 5, Harper,1) but I will be reenrolling at Saint Rose to complete my degree in order to become a principal/superintendent. Thank you St. Rose for not only preparing me for the field but giving me the Saint Rose edge that I need to keep growing and moving up in my educational career.”

Jordanne Weinstein Perkins ’00 is a renowned artist based in Maui, Hawaii, where she has her own gallery. In December 2021, she unveiled a new wall mural at Hawaii’s first public arts integration school, Pōmaikaʻi Elementary in Kahului, Maui. Inspired by and working with over 500 students, this 22-foot mural depicts an enchanted greenscape with various native flora and fauna: including student fingerprints and handprints. “This mural project reinforces how art can impact education and it was an honor to be a part of this creative process,” said Perkins. “I truly enjoyed this collaborative effort with students shaping the concept for the mural while also helping with the painting. My hope is that this project will continue to inspire them to dream big and do good.” For more on Jordanne’s amazing work, you can visit the Jordanne Gallery is on Maui or at her website www.jordannefineart.com.
