Nancy Vegas is excited to be the new special education teacher for 3rd and 4th graders at Gilliard!  She grew up in New Jersey and graduated from college with a bachelor’s degree in hotel and restaurant management.  She worked in the hotel industry for several years in Texas, Min-nesota, New York, and Florida before moving to Alabama.  She has been happily married to her husband for 26 years, and has three wonderful children - two sons (ages 23 and 20) and a daughter (age 17). Mrs. Vegas developed a passion for working with students with learning challenges after one of her own children struggled with learning disabilities.   She received her Alternative Master’s Degree in Special Education (K-6) from the University of South Alabama. She likes working with struggling students and watching their confidence grow as they make progress and experience success.
