Laura has worked in education at BVSD for more than 10 years; for the past 8 years she has worked with students in gifted education. In her role as a Gifted Educational Advisor, she identified and assessed gifted students, developed course plans and taught these students in small groups. She has been an advocate for students’ needs and routinely met with parents. Along with working in the public school system, Laura has been a private tutor and has been trained in Linguistic Remedies, a program for students with reading disabilities. She truly loves being able to work with students one-on-one, to help them thrive academically and watch them grow emotionally. With Laura’s kind, nurturing, positive attitude, and sense of humor, she has the ability to work with students to find their strengths and to help them succeed.
Donna has enjoyed working with students at all levels for over 30 years as both a General Education and Special Education teacher, having most recently retired from BVSD after teaching at the middle school and high school level for fourteen years. She also brings a depth of experience that includes private tutoring, working with dyslexic students using Orton-Gillingham based approaches and has a background in outdoor education as well.

Catherine brings a unique combination of skills which evolved from a desire to help her own twice-exceptional, ADHD child become an independent thriving adult. This evolution took her from a career in interior design to a career in Special Education. Catherine worked primarily at the middle school level for 9 years as a Special Education teacher in BVSD. Most recently she completed a practicum under the direction of Dr. Barbara Wise in Linguistic Remedies and works with dyslexic children privately. What Catherine loves the most about working one-on-one is the ability to individualize educational and organizational strategies for greater success.
Aryn is excited to be a part of Access to Achieve. She retired after 31 years of teaching full time in the public school system as a Special Education teacher. She likes this Executive Function coaching model because it allows for individual time to address student’s specific needs on a consistent basis. Building skills and strategies for students in order to build their joy and confidence with learning and in themselves as lifelong learners is a focal point of her professional endeavors. Aryn loves investing in her students and watching their changes and growth as they develop and learn. Aryn is not a Colorado native but, as the bumper sticker says, got here as soon as she could. Seeing the mountains every day still feels like a surprise and a privilege to her! She lives in Longmont with her husband, who is also still a surprise and privilege in her life.
