TAUNTON – Superintendent John Cabral and Executive Director of Human Resources Dr. Cheryl Butts is proud to announce that Amy Moynihan has been appointed as the new Director of Special Education at Taunton Public Schools.

Moynihan will officially take on her new role on Monday, November 29th. She replaces former director of special education Judy Mulrooney.

“Amy has deep connections to the Taunton Public Schools community and the city through her years of service and community involvement,” said Superintendent Cabral. “She is well versed in special education and is committed to meeting all of our students’ needs. I am confident that you will excel in this position and will continue to expand and improve our exemplary special education program. “

In this role, as director of the special education department, she will oversee the coordinators for special education, psychologists, special education teachers and all associated service providers. Moynihan will also oversee all special education programs and services for the district.

Moynihan has worked in the district for over 25 years. Prior to this position, Moynihan served as the district’s special education coordinator, providing academic, social, and emotional support for students with disabilities and their families. During her tenure as the district’s Special Education Coordinator, she is most proud of her work in implementing a co-teaching model for grades K-12 that allowed Taunton Public Schools students with disabilities (SWD) into the least restrictive environment with their typical colleagues. She also worked with middle school administrators and staff to implement Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) in all middle schools in the district to encourage social and emotional development.

Prior to serving as the district special education coordinator, Moynihan served as an 8th grade special education teacher for TPS and a special education teacher at the St. Vincent dormitory in Fall River.

Moynihan holds a Certificate of Advanced Graduate Study in Educational Leadership from Bridgewater State University and a Masters in Special Education from Simmons University. She is also certified as a middle school principal, special education teacher, and more.
