Mrs. Elizabeth Dugger
I am excited to be the ALE teacher here at Sippel Elementary. I have a BA in Psychology from Texas State University. After having been a stay at home Mom with my son, I followed my passion and pursued my Teaching Certificate in Elementary Education and paired it with a Special Education certification. Being a Special Education teacher is especially exciting since you have an opportunity to work with students and help shape them to become more independent. ALE is a unique class since it allows students a class that is especially for students who have needs that are not typical of the neurotypical child.
In ALE we use strategies which are repetitive and shaping to help behaviors and educational experiences. We use hands on learning paired with visuals, getures and reinforcements which are utilized to help students be successful at a level that is specific to their needs and goals.
