Mrs. Scanlon

Special Education Teacher - Nelson Ridge

Hello and welcome to my webpage!  I began my career here in New Lenox in 2001. My goal is to make my classroom a place where students feel  comfortable in their education, and their environment. Each year working with my students rewards me everyday.


Here's a description of the programs I service:

Resource (R) – Special education services for students whose needs can be met in the general education setting with support and related services. Services offered may include: instruction in the general education curriculum with accommodations/modifications, small group pull out resource support, co- teaching, and/or consultation with general education teachers. Special education services may occur within the general education classroom or as a pullout service. 

Instructional (I) – Instruction is provided within a self-contained special education classroom to meet goals and objectives written on the student’s IEP. Instruction and curriculum are based on the student’s instructional level. 

Please contact me via email tscanlon@nlsd122.org whenever needed.  

I am able to respond quickly to emails, so this is the best form of contact for me!  

You can also contact me via phone at 815-462-2870  

I am only able to check my voicemail before school, on my break, or after school so I will not be able to respond immediately.
