About Me

   Hello, 

   My name is Leilani Aguirre.  I am one of LOLC's Life Skills teachers, grades 1-3.  I have been involved somehow with Special Education since 2003 when I started out as a para.  I have always known that I wanted to be a teacher, but it wasn't until the birth of my oldest son that I realized that my path would lead me towards Special Education.

   I am a momma of 4 amazing children, each with a definite personality all their own.  My oldest son, however, was born with Down's Syndrome and later diagnosed with Autism which led me to where I am today.  I wouldn't change our journey for the world. 

   I enjoy very much what I do.  Each new student is another opportunity to make a difference.  


Mission Statement

   My  mission is to learn as much as I can to help my students and their families so that I may prepare them for life and help them be successful and productive members of society.  I don't just gain a student, I earn a family, and building a positive relationship is of the utmost importance to ensure that student's success.
