Kathi Nye, McCollum ES

Kathi Nye started her career as an educational assistant 26 years ago at McCollum Elementary in the Intensive Support Program. Four years after becoming an EA, she received her Early Childhood Special Education certification and began teaching in an ISP classroom. She has taught children with learning disabilities and for the last 10 years has taught children with autism.

McCollum has appreciated her 26 years of teaching children with disabilities and will miss her greatly, as she was a pillar of knowledge and strength for the autism program. Her kindness and ability to relate with the students at McCollum have made her a favorite among halls and her laugh can be heard anywhere on campus.

Her plans after retirement include volunteering at McCollum and working part-time at a local daycare. Kathi would like to invite all of her colleagues, friends, and family to her joint retirement party on May 16 at 3:30 in the cafeteria at McCollum.
