Tritt Elementary School
Special Needs Preschool/Pre-K
Hello! My name is Lori Lide and teach the Special Needs Preschool Class
at Tritt Elementary School.
I have been involved with Tritt on both a personal and professional level
for the past 14 years. This is my tenth year with the SNP program and my
fourth as an SNP teacher.
Prior to Tritt, I worked for seven years in Texas as the manager of a
state and federally funded Early Intervention In-Home Support Program and I
also coordinated the Tarrant County Integrated Preschool Inclusion Program.
I have a Master's degree in Early Childhood Special Education/Multiple
and Severe Disabilities from Georgia State University. I am certified to
teach PreK-5th grade special and general education classes. I have additional
endorsements in Preschool Special Education and in teaching Reading and
Literacy for grades P-12. My education also includes attending the University
of Tennessee (UT) and Texas Christian University (TCU), where I graduated with
a Bachelor's degree in Child Development and Family Studies.
My husband and I just celebrated 25 years together. Chuck is an engineer
in the aerospace industry and is seriously into kayaking and mountain
climbing. Our daughters are 17 and 19, and both attended Tritt. My youngest
will be serving as a US Student Ambassador to Indonesia this year, living in
Java with a local family and completing her high school studies there. My
oldest is a Sophomore studying Mechanical and Bio-medical Engineering at
Georgia Tech. We all enjoy adventure travels and outdoor activities. We love
pets and have adopted a dog and a cat.
I am looking forward to getting to know your families, and welcome your
communication. My e-mail address and phone number will be posted on the blog.
