My name is Sammie Ortiz and I teach 7th/8th grade SPICE II. SPICE focuses on: social pragmatics, independence, communication and emotional regulation. I work with each of my students in areas they need extra support in in my class and in their other academic classes.
I graduated with my bachelors in special education from Arizona State University (Go SunDevils!). I am currently in the Applied Behavior Analysis Masters program at ASU. Since my youth, I knew my future was going to be a teacher of students with autism. This passion was cultivated through my personal life. My cousin has autism, which allowed me the opportunity to experience growth of a person with autism.
