Hi, I’m Marjie Schermer and I look forward to serving you in Admissions and Enrollment. My work has been influenced in great measure by my many years in the field of education. After earning a Master’s in English from the University of Michigan and a PhD in Curriculum and Supervision from Pitt, I had the extraordinary experience of teaching high school English for nearly two decades. Later, my career diversified further. I served on a team charged with the task of accrediting another university’s school of education. In addition, I spent several years on the faculty of Pitt’s SOE. In addition to teaching courses, I have supervised Pitt’s SOE interns and student teachers and I have trained their mentors.
I currently serve as an admissions liaison for the BS/MS in Applied Developmental Psychology
; MA/MEd in Research Methodology
; Combined Accelerated Studies in Education
(CASE); Primary Plus
: PreK – Grade 4; MEd/certification in Reading Education
; MEd/certification in Applied Behavioral Analysis
; MEd/certification in Vision Studies
; and all Master's programs in Special Education
. As both a former faculty member and an alumna of Pitt’s SOE, I can attest to the excellence of our academic programs. I thoroughly enjoy working with students interested in exploring careers in education and the opportunities available in Pitt’s School of Education.
Please feel free to contact me for assistance throughout the admissions and enrollment process. Welcome to the University of Pittsburgh!
