My name is Paula Latimer. I'm the Special Education Director for Coalgte Public Schools. This is my fifth year here at Coalgate. Prior to Coalgate I worked for McAlester Public Schools for ten years as the multiple disabilities teacher for k-6th grade.
My degrees are from SEOSU and NEOSU in Elementary Education and Special Education. I have endorsements in multiple disabilities, autism, other health impaired and traumatic brain injuries. I'm a licensed instructor for autism awareness and recently completed training as a licensed instrutor for nonviolent crisis intervention.
I live in Lane, Oklahoma with my husband John. We have six grown children and five grandchildren. We have a Yorkie named Scruffles and has ADHD. We also have a Pugs who we call Pugaroo and she is a sweetheart.
