Retired Special Education Teacher from Fox Meadow Middle School in Harrison District 2 in Colorado Springs

As of June 1, 2021, I am a Retired Moderate Needs Special Education Teacher from Fox Meadow Middle School in Harrison School District 2 in Colorado Springs, Colorado after 32 years of service. I worked with students who have moderate, effective, and cognitive needs throughout my career as a paraprofessional and as a special educator in the special education and general education classrooms. I also served as the Special Education Team Leader for many years. I teach because I love kids and feel that I can and do make a difference in their lives, I have an Undergraduate degree in Business Administration. While on a tour of duty as a dependent in Germany, I would often volunteer in my daughter’s classroom . One day while in her classroom, her teacher stated that there was a special education classroom down the hallway, and that the teacher could use some help with her students. I started volunteering in that classroom and fell in love with the students there who had severe physical and cognitive disabilities. Suddenly, I had a change of heart and realized that I had found the opportunity to do what I enjoyed tremendously and loved Upon my return to the United States, I applied and was accepted into Graduate school to pursue a Master’s Degree in Special Education. Over the years, I can say that I made the right decision to teach students with special needs. l have truly loved teaching, advocating, and supporting these students. The students have enriched my life also (my way of thinking , caring, and supporting others).
