Senior Director of Franciscan Values & Missionmdealca@stcolettawi.org
Mario Dealca has been with St. Coletta for 23 years and has a Bachelor’s degree in Philosophy from Holy Rosary College Seminary, a Master’s degree in Theology from Holy Rosary Seminary Graduate School of Theology, a Master’s Degree in Special Education from UW-Whitewater and a PhD (abd) in Special Education from the University of Wisconsin – Madison. Mario’s knowledge and understanding of the field of disability is at the intersection of three streams: his personal background and commitment to the mission and values of St. Coletta; his academic training in philosophy, theology, and special education, and his years of professional experience. It is, however, his coworkers; the people St. Coletta is privileged to serve and their families, who have been his best teachers. They have taught him that the best programs and services can only be developed based on our relationship with one another.
