I am Cari Duttlinger, a veteran teacher in the field of special education. I began my educational career at Malcom Bridge Middle in 2000, and in 2015, transferred to High Shoals Elementary School. I love working with all children, but especially struggling learners. I have experiences in a variety of settings where special education services are provided. These settings include the separate class for adapted curriculum, educational support and interventions, as well as co-teaching in the general education classroom setting. I believe in the inherent worth of each child and will strive to help each student reach his or her maximal potential. I maintain high expectations for each student, and believe that he or she has a unique set of gifts and attributes that can benefit those around them. My hope is that your child will blossom in the environment you have entrusted me to provide.
