My name is Lynsie, and I'm excited to welcome you to Another Education Blog, a product of my desire to share what I've learned throughout my educational career in hopes that I can add value to your craft. This site/blog is a new adventure that I've been considering for a while now. Since we FINALLY said good riddance to 2020, I decided that there was no time like the present, so in January of 2021, Another Education Blog was born.
I wholeheartedly believe that the Lord has provided me with every opportunity and success I've had in my career and that this field my calling. Time and time again, I'm reminded of His faithfulness in my career. To be transparent, you should know what you're getting yourself into. I plan to provide you with regular content that's about 90% legit & professional with about 10% sarcasm, snark and sass sprinkled in.
Though I've taught in both large and small districts, the bulk of my experience teaching special education has been in smaller rural districts, including two with cooperative-style SPED delivery models. Along the way in my career, I was recognized as the Special Education Teacher of the Year (09/10, thankyouverymuch) & also obtained my Master's Degree (M. Ed, Autism Intervention).
I currently work as a Special Education Instructional Specialist for a tiny little Texas school district. My position allows me to work with sped teachers & students across the district, which is a pretty incredible gig, my favorite career gig so far! I enjoy working with others and collaborating with those that are receptive.
From facilitating professional learning, mentoring & coaching to problem-solving, collaborating to build instructional plans & just being there to listen, I can safely say that no 2 days are alike...and I'm totally here for it!
I'm a believer in lifelong learning & leading by example from where you are, regardless of your title or position.
Lastly, it's probably helpful to note that my writing mood determines if/how I use the Oxford comma and the number of ellipses used in each post. You've been warned ;)
