Greetings!! My name is Ali and I live in my hometown of Emporia, Kansas. I began teaching Special Education at Marais des Cygnes Junior High and now High School in 2007.
Anyone that knows me, knows I have a hunger to learn, connect with students, and serve our school with passion. I teach for the students. My goal is to help them become the best versions of themselves!
I have taught grades first through twelve spending four years in general education, ten years in special education, and as an interventionist and Autism Specialist.
I am here for all students. Even if you are not on in special education or on an IEP, I am here to be a resource and support all students in leaving school set up for success. Please do not hesitate to contact me about student's learning needs, behavioral needs, college and career goals, or supports for Autism and Learning Delays. I am here to help and can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org, (785) 549-3313, or on Facebook.
To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice the gift. -Steve Prefontaine
