Lindsey B. Coker, M.Ed.

Anna Shaw Children's Institute
Educational Resource Coordinator
I graduated from the University of Alabama with a degree in Elementary Education in 2008, after completing my student teaching in Geelong, Australia. Once returning to the States, I became a special education paraprofessional and went on to receive my Masters of Education from the University of West Alabama, as well as my certification in special education in 2010.
Since 2010, each of my students have varied in differing abilities including low to high functioning autism, physical disabilities, emotional behavior disorders, processing disorders, and attention deficit disorders. I have worked in all areas of the “continuum of services” including, home bound, self-contained, resource, co-teaching, and collaborative settings.
In May of 2018, I became the Director of Special Needs Services for Northwest Georgia Healthcare Partnership. This opportunity allowed me to facilitate positive, proactive communication and cooperation between parents of children with special needs, school personnel, healthcare providers, and the community.
I am currently the Educational Resource Coordinator for Anna Shaw Children’s Institute and continue to provide positive, proactive communication, education and cooperation between parents of children with special needs, school personnel, healthcare providers, and the community.
