Joy Eickhoff, High School Campus Support Specialist

My number one reason that I love working in the Special Education department for Eanes ISD is our students!  They are amazing and their families are very involved and care about their progress.  My number two reason is the number of opportunities I have had for professional growth. With the help of the district, I have been able to acquire my Master's degree in Special Education and also become a Level 1 Wilson Reading System teacher.  I have been able to hold many different teaching positions, including Life Skills, Modified and Collaborative English, and now I am a Reading Specialist.  I have taught at two different campuses in my 16 years in the Eanes district. Eanes opens doors for educators to grow and expand their careers. 

Jackie Boykin, Elementary Special Education Teacher

Excellence is the standard in Eanes!  I’ve enjoyed 25 years of teaching here and I love being part of something so special.  At the core, each person is valued, possessing diverse abilities and talents. I love this community.  It’s truly an inclusive culture.  I also appreciate the support I have from the Special Education administrative team and opportunities for professional development to implement best instructional practices.

There is no better place to teach Special Education than in Eanes ISD! The sense of community, support, and joy is something you can't find anywhere else. I love coming to work every single day, and I feel so lucky to teach the most incredible students in the world!

Paige Weiss, High School Special Education Teacher

This District is one of the most inclusive and supportive districts I have worked in. They strive to make the students and staff feel appreciated and involved in decisions that affect them. Eanes is truly a wonderful place to work. Looking forward to many more years working in one of the best districts in the Nation! 

Dave Dilling, High School Behavior Support Teacher

I have been a Behavior Support Teacher in Eanes for 10 years. When I came to Eanes my education really began. I had a coordinator who was on my campus working with me directly every week. I also had a behavior specialist who I collaborated with 2-3 times per week. My immediate supervisors genuinely cared about the quality of the special education teacher they had hired. I was taught how to write IEPs and goals and most importantly, I was taught how to be an effective special education teacher.
