Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Tangela Byrd

My husband and I have been blessed with two boys, an amazing daughter in law, and a beautiful granddaughter. They are my world! I began my teachng career in Marion County as a paraprofessional for 2 years as I finished my teaching degree. I have been teaching ESE for 16 years. My passion for ESE began when my youngest son, caleb, was born in 1994 with Down Syndrome. He has taught me so much throughout his childhood years and now as a young adult. I feel having a child with a disability has given me a better understanding of teaching individuals with special needs.
