Who is Miss Lulu?
Hi! I'm Laura!
Me & my teacher self
I recently started a new adventure working as a district life skills coordinator. Previously, I taught 9 years in a self-contained, life skills classroom. I have my bachelor's in Elementary Education (1st-6th) and Special Education (K-12 with a severe emphasis) and my Masters in Special Education with a Transition concentration.
Me & my business
I'm all about helping special education teachers balance functional skills & academic instruction so that they can maintain high student expectations without getting overwhelmed trying to teach #allthethings. I'm big on helping teachers figure out how to align instruction to state standards while still prioritizing IEP goals.
I am passionate about curriculum development and strive to create differentiated resources that teachers can easily use in their classrooms. I especially enjoy creating functional resources that teach real-life skills. And I love to collaborate, communicate and share ideas with other teacher friends!
me & my personal life
I am a wife and mother, both human and animal. I have one little boy, a dogs, and 2 cats. Our son was diagnosed with Spina Bifida when I was 20 weeks pregnant and I've been thrown into experiencing the world of special education from the other side of the table- as a parent. I love to read, binge watch Netflix, explore the outdoors, cook, and occasionally attempt a Pinterest craft.
