My name is Lacey and I am a certified special education teacher in Texas. I have a passion for working with children who have autism. I began my career in a PPCD classroom as the teacher's aide. I had a great experience and wonderful teachers who taught me so much and ultimately inspired me to become a special education teacher.
I have always known I wanted to work with children who have special needs, but I was not sure in what capacity. I went to school at University of Houston and studied Human Development and Family Studies with a minor in special education. I spent time in hospital, respite, and clinical settings, but felt my heart was in the classroom.
I am about to begin my second year in a self contained autism classroom and hope you will read along as I share my journey.
