Mallory DeMarco began working in the field of special education 12 years ago.
She started her career as a paraprofessional in an ABA preschool classroom. When she returned to Rhode Island to complete her degree in Psychology she worked for an in-home agency and worked one-on-one with two clients on the autism spectrum. After graduating, she returned to New Jersey to work as a paraprofessional in preschool and primary classes for students on the autism spectrum.
As Mallory worked towards her master’s degree in special education she also serves as a substitute teacher. After completing her master’s from New Jersey City University she began working with first-grade students on the autism spectrum.

Mallory is inspired by her students daily and pushes them outside of their comfort zones to help them reach their maximum potential. As a BCBA, Mallory continues to work with individuals with special needs of all ages.
