About IEP Senior Specialist
Debbie Christy, M.A.
Hello families of gifted kids!
My name is Debbie Christy. I have been an IEP Specialist for the past 20 years now. Before becoming an IEP Specialist, I worked at three middle schools in various job roles as a Special Educator. I have taught as a B, C, and D level teacher as well as done inclusion. I was also a Head Special Education Teacher.
I really love what I do as an IEP Specialist. I had retired several years ago and came back. It's important to me, as an IEP Specialist, to help with the understanding and facilitation of IEPs in order to make the best decisions for students. One of the best parts of the job for me is when parents feel they have had meaningful participation in their child's IEP and that they leave the table with a good understanding of the IEP process.
Communication and follow-up are an important part of this process.
I am very interested in working with others (you all) in order to help with a better understanding of the IEP process.I am also very interested in helping others (you all) to feel comfortable in asking questions and with working to find answers to those questions.
