Testimonials: Educational Advocacy

Mrs. Cambria worked closely with The Pinnacle School as our consultant and then as our interim Educational Director during our initial state approval process. She was instrumental in every step of the process and was an amazing asset and a wealth of information. Mrs. Cambria worked tirelessly to ensure that we had everything in place leading up to our review days. She also seamlessly stepped in as our leader, supporting staff and spearheading the IEP process with school districts. We will be forever grateful for the key role Mrs. Cambria played at our school.

As The Spire School was preparing for its initial review by the CT State Department of Education to become an Approved Private Special Education Program, Donna Cambria provided essential guidance to ensure our success. Donna served as our interim education director and helped guide us through the important details of the State Approval process, the PPT process, IEP implementation, and collaboration with school districts. It was wonderful to work with an expert in the field who was consistently dependable, conscientious, detail-oriented, and all the while maintained a good sense of humor and collegial spirit! Donna provided much-needed professional development for our faculty and staff and recommended colleagues who could provide additional training in content areas of interest to our team. In short, Donna is an incredible resource with a strong sense of follow-through; her vast experience and results-driven style put us at ease as she helped us navigate the State Approval process. She was an amazing addition to our team and I look forward to our continued collaborations.
