Hello, Parents and Students;

My background stems from Sarasota, Florida, where I grew up. I received a Bachelor'sDegree in Exercise Sports Sciences from the University of Florida.  After working four years in corporate wellness for Sarasota County Government, I wanted less beach and more mountains and moved to Denver, Colorado.  Upon my arrival in 2001, I began working in special education and started a family.  I have two children, my son will be in ninth grade this year, and my daughter will be a junior. In 2015, I completed a Master's Degree in Special Education from the University of Colorado.  I was drawn to special education during my bachelor's degree when I volunteered for unified sports. My heart lies in assisting students in reaching their highest potential by becoming more independent both in and outside of the classroom. Learning is a lifelong journey; I just finished my ABA (Applied Behavior Analysis) certification through UCD, and I am looking forward to applying my knowledge with connecting behaviors to learning within my classrooms. I value relationships and encourage students to be self-advocates by understanding their learning style, learning struggles, and study habits to assist with their learning journey.  The 2020/2021 school year will be my fourth year at Ranch View Middle School.                                             
I am looking forward to working with you this year!

Best,
Holly McLane MA Sp, Ed.
