Bio

Mr. Willis is currently enrolled in a Masters program at Georgia State University in the College of Education and Human Development focussing on Special Education, specifically teaching students with Autism Spectrum Disorder.  As a paraprofessional last year, Mr. Willis was drawn to the students in the classroom and realized the need for teachers in this field.  Now as a first year teacher of record in the Severe Intellectual Disability classroom, Mr. Willis is excited about the opportunity to apply the knowledge obtained from taking courses directly to the classroom and maximize cognitive development and life skills acquisition for our students on the spectrum.
