Vincent Bellante Joins Marian High School as Accommodations Specialist

Marian High School is pleased to welcome Vincent Bellante as its new Accommodations Specialist. Mr. Bellante brings a wealth of experience and a deep commitment to enhancing student success within an inclusive environment. Mr. Bellante began his career in education as a paraprofessional at Macomb Intermediate School District. After realizing his passion for working with youth, he shifted his focus to special education, working as a psychoeducational therapist for Farmington Public Schools for over 29 years. Mr. Bellante supported students with emotional and learning disabilities, leaving a lasting impact on their lives. He also served as a coach in various sports, helping students grow both in the classroom and on the field. 

 With his extensive experience as a special education teacher, Mr. Bellante understands the importance of recognizing each student's unique needs. "The key to working with students, families, and educators is to build positive relationships," he emphasized. Acknowledging that a one-size-fits-all approach does not effectively serve students, Mr. Bellante intends to meet with each student to develop tailored accommodation plans, ensuring that every student's academic journey is supported and enriched. He plans to collaborate closely with Marian’s faculty and staff to develop a comprehensive program that best serves the students. 

Mr. Bellante's servant leadership style honed while Clinic Administrator at Metro EHS Pediatric Therapy perfectly aligns with his mission at Marian. "As a servant leader, I prioritize serving the greater good," he explains. His approach centers on empathy, flexibility, stewardship, and attentive listening, qualities that will help him foster meaningful relationships with students and staff. Drawing from his years of experience, Mr. Bellante has a clear message for educators and institutions striving to support their students better: "As educators, we must continue to help all students that walk through our doors. We must meet their academic and social-emotional needs for our students to succeed.”  

Mr. Bellante is honored to join the Marian community and work with the students, families, and faculty to create a supportive environment for all learners. As he steps into this pivotal role, the Marian community can look forward to his guidance, dedication, and commitment to ensuring every student has the tools and support needed to succeed.
