About Colleen

Hi! My name is Colleen I.; I know I can help your child be successful in school! I am the mother of 6 children (and 2 grandsons!) I have been an educator for over 15 years; specifically in the area of Special Education. I have my master's degree in Special Education (LBS1). I have been trained in Executive Functioning; a skill that will help your child be successful in school and in life. I have taught at the high school level for over 10 years. Currently, I am supervising special education interns at the university level. I have experience in co-taught classes (inclusion classes); so I have worked with general education students too. As part of your child's academic team, I will make sure he/she is working at their level. I will encourage your child to do their very best! Lastly, if your child has an IEP (individualized education plan), I can assist you with that in any way needed. If you have questions or concerns, please contact me. Take care... Hi!
