Our Students: Molly Bicchieri, Special Education

Posted by Kimberly McCoy-Blauser on May 5, 2020 at 10:00 AM

Are you interested in Fitchburg State's special education programs? As part of the GCE Blog's "Our Students" series, we introduce Molly Bicchieri and thank her for sharing this post about her experience in the special education program.

Describe your overall experience in our Special Education program.

I just finished my master’s in December. My experience with the program overall was just amazing. The professors were SO GOOD and Dr. Howard and Dr. Murray supported me the entire way. I could call them whenever, even though I was studying online, and that was key for me. I didn’t feel like just another student, I felt like I mattered. I am Fitchburg State through and through.

What do you plan to do with your degree?
I work right now at a substantially separate preschool. My hope is that my master’s will allow me to become a BCBA. I work with students who have a lot of challenges, and the new behavioral program at Fitchburg State will allow me to sit for the boards. This program really set me up for success in my current job.
