ESE Coordinator: Laurie McCormick

Laurie McCormick has been a part of the Bak MSOA family for more than 15 years, and has enjoyed being a part of such a special place and among some of the most talented teachers and students in the state.  Her teaching career began in 1988 after graduating with her bachelor's degree in special education from the University of Florida and moving on to earn her Master's degree in special education from Florida State University.  Yes, she is a Gator, not a Seminole!!  Teaching students at Bak MSOA has been one of the most rewarding experiences in her life and she looks forward to many more years in this wonderful place. 

Mrs. McCormick coordinates services for students with special needs, including Individual Education Plans (IEPs) and gifted Education Plans (EPs).  She is available to answer your questions about your child's IEP, EP, or to discuss possible eligibility.  Email: [email protected]
