Hello and Welcome!
My name is Nancy Cox and I am an Exceptional Children Teacher's Assistant (E.C.-T.A..) I have been assisting Special Needs students at Falkener for 5 years and have worked as an EC-TA in the Guilford County Schools for eighteen years.
I graduated from UNC- Greensboro with a degree in English and an A certification in elementary and middle school education. I also attended Greensboro College and studied learning differences in exceptional children. I taught eighth grade Language Arts for two years. I also worked at a private day school as an ESOL teacher and taught English to Russian and Israeli students. Still looking for my niche, I taught remedial reading and written language to learning disabled children, teenagers, and adults at Educational Consultants. During that six year period, I had the pleasure of teaching two adult students to read. My time as an EC-TA has been my favorite. In 2012, I received the Guilford County School's Employee of the Month award as a one on one assistant to a paraplegic student that I assisted from his first grade year to graduation from high school.
I love working with all children, but those closest to my heart are students who have special needs. They are amazing individuals and I feel privileged to have an opportunity to work with them.
