Candace Grant is a special educator who is highly qualified in math. She has taught math to students with a wide range of disabilities in public schools as well as day treatment and residential treatment facilities. Additionally, she brings extensive experience teaching students with ASD.
Prior to coming to the Temple Grandin School, Candace taught math at Ponderosa High School in Parker, CO, Florence Crittenton High School for teen moms and Thomas Jefferson High Schools in Denver, CO, and Hinkley High School in Aurora, CO. Candace has taken professional development classes to learn more about being an effective teacher and was selected by the Colorado Department of Education to create lessons to help other educators become more effective at teaching students with disabilities. She also created a two-year modified pacing/scope-and-sequence guide for the modified Algebra I course used by Denver Public School.
Candace loves teaching math and watching how it enhances a student’s thinking. And she loves to challenge a student’s thinking by helping them explore deeper mathematical topics. She also believes that besides helping students grow in their academic and social skills, students help her grow.
