Resources developed by Elizabeth Reyes, M. Ed.


Elizabeth is currently a first year doctoral student in the Special Education program at UNC Charlotte. Previously, she graduated with honors from UNC Charlotte with a B.A. degree in Special Education as a North Carolina Teaching Fellow. During undergraduate education, Elizabeth studied abroad in Europe and China with the Educational Leadership Department the to study the cultures and school system structures to gain a more global perspective of education.

Following undergraduate graduation, she taught in Title I schools in both rural and urban areas in North Carolina for five years. As a highly qualified teacher licensed in both general and adapted curriculum, she taught students with various high-incidence and low-incidence disabilities in self-contained, resource, and inclusive elementary school settings. While teaching full-time, Elizabeth earned a Masters of Education degree in Special Education with specialty area of Autism at UNC Charlotte.

For the past four years Elizabeth has worked as the director of a pre-kindergarten through twelfth grade inclusion program for students with autism and other disabilities at two local, private schools in the Charlotte area. This job allowed me flexibility to transition to life as a new mother and continue to pursue my passion to serve students with disabilities and their families. She returned for a third time to UNC Charlotte to pursue her Ph.D. in Special Education with an anticipated graduation date of May 2020. Her current research interests include academic and behavioral interventions used in inclusive settings for students with autism.
