My name is Theresa Paldino, or Ms. Pal, and I am a special education teacher at Travis Elementary.
I have worked at Travis for the past five years, one year as an instructional assistant and four years teaching, and have had the opportunity to work with a variety of students with different abilities, such as: autism, intellectual disability, emotion behavior disorder, and attention deficit disorder. I received my Masters degree in special education from Texas State University, and plan to return for my BCBA certification.
I have a younger brother who has down syndrome, so I am very aware of the potential confusion and frustrations that parents may face as they navigate through the school system. It's important to me that I not only build a relationship with your child but also you, because we are a cohesive team that is working towards your child's success and independence.
I can't wait to see what the year brings and if you ever have questions or concerns please do not hesistate to contact me!
