Hanna Savransky, M.Ed.
Hanna Savransky has served as the Principal of the Manville School since 1995 and has been a member of the school’s administrative team for over 25 years. Throughout her tenure at the school, Ms. Savransky’s focus has been on the development and implementation of a comprehensive educational program along with the provision of excellent supervision, training and support of special education teachers as they strive to address the individual academic and social/emotional needs of their students.
Ms. Savransky completed her Master’s degree in Special Education at Boston University and her teaching internship at the Walker School. She began working at Manville as a classroom teacher and then became the school’s first Educational Coordinator. After completing coursework toward licensure in school administration, she became the Principal and has worked with the school’s educational administrative team to implement many new academic initiatives. The development of a collaborative model of intervention in which professionals from multiple disciplines, including educational, clinical, counseling, psychiatric, speech and language, and occupational therapy, work together to address the needs of Manville students has been a major focus for Ms. Savransky.
As the Manville School has grown and the challenges faced by its students have become more varied, the complexity and breadth of the educational programming has evolved to better address the students’ learning and social/emotional needs. The goal of maintaining a current and innovative educational program remains the aim of Manville’s educational administration.
