How and Why I Chose To Go Into Teaching

NICE TO MEET YOU

I'm Nicolette Lesniak

I am the founder and creator of Coaching Around You.™ I love coaching teachers to make the IEP process easier by building strong partnerships with all members of the IEP team.

I provide support and coaching to build effective classroom systems and IEPs, and Individual Education Plans,  with sustained partnerships to prepare students for future employment, further education, and independent living.

I have over 20 years of experience as a certified Exceptional Needs Specialist in Indiana and Illinois. I have provided virtual webinars for para-professionals and teachers to grow their practice by building independence, data collection, and effective communication & collaboration skills.
