Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome! I am Laura Walkup and I am a 5th and 6th grade Exceptional Children's program teacher at Dixon Middle School. I have been in special education since 2002 in North Carolina. I work closely with the wonderful general education teachers here at Dixon Middle. Together, we collaborate to meet the individual learning goals of each student while supporting students to access the general curriculum. We work hard to create lessons to meet the needs of the whole group, as well as tweak projects as needed to meet the personal academic needs of every student. I completed my undergraduate degree at Appalachian State University in Special Education and my master's degree at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte in Curriculum and Supervision. I have five beautiful chlidren of my own that keep me on my toes and my heart full! I welcome communication, so please be in touch if you have any questions or concerns about your child's education.
