From the time Annie volunteered as a teenager at Sky Lake Camp for people with special needs, her career path in special education was clear. Annie earned her undergraduate degree in both special education and elementary education from SUNY Geneseo and her Master’s Degree in Special Education from Western Oregon State College. Annie has taught and tutored students in New York, Washington and Oregon, in public and private schools. Throughout her teaching career, Annie’s focus has been to provide guidance to promote student independence to the fullest extent possible, including accessing needed supports. Annie’s experience included assisting students, families, and district staff to understand, navigate, and implement special education policies and best practices. Annie joined Wiscarson Law in August, 2018 to continue providing guidance to families in the role as an advocate.
