“The cohort model in the MAEL program fostered collaboration and collegiality while focusing on real-world application of professional challenges. The insight and training I received from my professors were based on the multitude of experience they brought to the table. What set Ramapo apart was that it tapped the local experience of North Jersey education. This provided me an opportunity to learn and apply in the moment, and has set me up with a network for years to come in my career.” – Manny Morelli ’16 graduated with his Masters of Arts in Educational Leadership from Ramapo College. He graduated summa cum laude from Boston College with a bachelor’s in history and was a member of BC’s Phi Beta Kappa. Manny is the Principal of Don Bosco Prep in Ramsey, N.J., as of July 1, 2019.
