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 at 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.
