From little d to Big D, she traded Denton for Dallas and served as a special education teacher (elementary and secondary) for three years.

Lindsey has 13 years experience developing and monitoring individualized education programs (IEPs), developing goals and objectives for students, and recommending supports and strategies for students in the classroom and state testing (STAAR). She truly enjoys helping parents and schools understand the Response to Intervention process, evaluation process and possible outcomes.
