All About Me! Welcome to THE Leander High School!  My name is Andrea Patton-Reedy and I will be your child's Tracking Teacher for the 2018-19 school year. This will be my 11th year teaching Special Education in the ICAP (Individualized Community and Academic-based Program) classroom at Leander HS---GO LIONS! I am looking forward to growing and learning with your child; helping them discover their gifts, their full potential, their "abilities".  Together we can make a difference; together we will face the challenges with dignity; together we will praise the struggles and cheer the successes!

This summer was all about awesome 3,200 mile road trip, lots of reading, swimming, bible studies, friends and family!  My oldest daughter, Caroline, will be a Junior at Texas State, majoring in Music Education with an emphasis on the flute and piccolo. Samantha will be attending ACC, figuring out her next stage in life.  My husband Bob, is a research scientist for the UT J.J. Pickle Research Bureau for 22 years. Oh, and I can't forget our pets...our dog Molly and our cat Ms. Kitty!

With a passion for children, I also provide Respite Care for foster children and advocate for their needs as a CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) in Williamson County.  This has blessed me and my family as we continue to strive to help those in need.
My personal goal is to teach your child the necessary tools to become a productive, independent, confident, and responsible citizen, through student-centered planning, practice self-advocacy skills, and community-based instruction. 
Any input you have about your son/daughter that would benefit their learning style and needs is always welcomed.

My Paraprofessionals this year are Ms. K, Ms. Bila, Ms. V, and Mr. David.  Your child will be in great hands!!!  This team has such a passion for our students with different needs and brings a positive, professional, engaging, goal-driven outlook for their future.  Oh, and we can't forget lots of laughter :)

Please feel free to call me any time with any concerns and/or questions you may have at (512) 570-1070.

With the future in mind,

Andrea Patton-Reedy
ICAP Special Education 9-12
