Greetings! My name is Wes Vaina, and I joined the School of Education as a graduate enrollment manager in May of 2014. As a Pitt graduate with my professional background in undergraduate admissions, I am thrilled to provide guidance for future students as they make the transition to graduate studies. At the University of Pittsburgh School of Education, our unique combination of world-class faculty, a nationally-ranked program, and a dynamic city combine to offer students the perfect environment in which to develop and practice their skills as educators.
I am proud to serve as the admissions liaison for the following programs: MAT/MOSAIC/Instructional I for English, Foreign Language, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies; MEd and Certification in Reading Education; MEd and Certification in Vision Studies; MEd in Early Childhood Education; MEd in Early Intervention; MEd and Certification in Applied Behavior Analysis; MEd in General Special Education; the Supervisor of Special Education Certification.
If you have an interest in any of these programs, or if you would simply like to learn more about the School of Education, don’t hesitate to contact me!
Wesley A. Vaina
