Ms. Ursula Leahy


Welcome to Pisgah Forest Elementary special education. I have been teaching in this field for 35 years and my passion for reading and teaching reading has grown each year.  I want to help every child be able to read independently and become successful, functioning, happy adults. I work with students who struggle with learning disabilities in reading, focus and attention, autism and other health impairments.  I also work with students who have limited vision as the county's teacher of the visually impaired, and yes I teach Braille! I believe we each have gifts to share and everyone can be successful!
