Mrs. Jessica Hastings » Meet Mrs. Hastings:

Meet Mrs. Hastings:

Education: I graduated from Lee University in Cleveland, TN in 2006 with a bachelor’s degree in Special Education K-12. I will be working on my Master’s and becoming a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) within the next year or two.

Experience: I have been working with children with disabilities since I graduated high school in 2001. I started out as a personal assistant in a group home for 2 years and then a classroom aide for the same state program for 2 years while I was finishing my educational studies. I taught at Soddy Daisy High School for 1 year as an inclusion teacher, and then took a job at Soddy Elementary School in Chattanooga, TN. This is the job that took me by surprise and showed me what my calling was in life. I was given the chance to work in the DCC ( specific for non-verbal children with Autism) for 5 years. This is where my desire to work with the non-verbal population just grew stronger and stronger. I am currently the CDC teacher here at Flintville School and am looking forward to many more years to come!
 
Personal Information: I am the Head Coach for the boys basketball team.
