Angie Leonard Davis
Special Education Coordinator in Plano, Texas
I am currently a Special Education Coordinator in a large suburban school district. I specialize in curriculum and instruction.
My educational background includes attending Lamar University where I earned a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies with an emphasis in Early Childhood Education and where I also earned a Master's Degree in Educational Leadership. I am continuing my love of research and pursuing my Educational Doctorate also at Lamar University.
I have been fortunate to have a variety of teaching experiences over the past 15 years. I began my career as a first grade teacher. I then taught second grade for two years in Florida where I obtained a gifted certification. Upon returning to Texas, I began teaching English and reading in the special education resource setting for 6th, 7th. and 8th grade.
I currently hold Texas teaching certifications including, Principal, Elementary Education, Early Childhood Education, and Special Education. In addition, I am a a certified appraiser for T-TESS.
My current collaborative projects include Universal Design for Learning, inclusion studies for students served by special education, and research in the overrepresentation of Hispanic students in special education.
When I am not with my students, I am a mother of two boys and I am blessed with an amazing husband. My evenings are often spent at baseball practice while trying to sneak in a few educational journals!
