Welcome to Our Class
Meet the TeacherHello! My name is Katelyn Lopez and I teach a special needs classroom with kiddos in grades K-1. I started at Joy as a paraprofessional in 2015, and began teaching my own class in 2018. I graduated with my undergraduate degree in 2015 and am expected to complete my Master's in Special Education from Purdue Northwest in 2020.I believe in using a predictable, structured routine in order to help my students thrive academically as well as foster independence. I look forward to having a positive partnership with your family and student, so that we, together, can help our kiddos to grow and succeed!
