301: A fresh look at Special Education Services with Leddy Glenn

Leddy Glenn’s passion for Special Education began when she was working at a non-profit and realized the individuals she enjoyed working with most were ones with exceptionalities. When she had this epiphany, she left her job and went back to school to become a special education teacher. Leddy learned how each aspect of the special education process could evolve because she has sat at every seat at an Individual Education Plan (IEP) meeting as the student, special education teacher, and parent. This is why she created Fresh Thinking Special Education Advisors.

“In the field of special education services, my goal every day is to identify and apply educational approaches to help all involved succeed.”

Leddy Glenn holds a Master’s of Arts in Speech Communication from University of Central Missouri. She also holds a Master’s of Arts in Teaching and Learning from Avila University. She has been facilitating individual and group exploration of abilities for over 20 years.
