Hi! I’m Miss. Fort. This is my first year of teaching special education and my first year at Leyton; I am so thankful to be working in such a great community!
I’m originally from Minnesota but have lived in Nebraska for about thirteen years now. When I'm not at school I like to read, spend time with my family, and do anything creative.
Fun fact about me: I lived in Northern Ireland for three months and jumped into the Irish Sea when it was colder than the Titanic waters!

Philosophy of Education
I believe a classroom should be a safe and predictable place for students, focused on academic, social, and emotional learning. No learning can take place if all students do not feel safe in their learning environment, and this begins by developing good relationships with students that are built upon genuine interest in them as people. I strive to speak to the strengths of my students and lighten the load of their weaknesses, challenging them to be better in every way – academically, emotionally, and behaviorally.
