Lisa Matsumoto, M.Ed.

Inclusion Coach, matsul@uw.edu

Lisa supports ECEAP (Early Childhood Education and Assistance Program) teachers in improving their instructional practices to prepare children for successfully transitioning to kindergarten. Lisa is a certificated special and general education teacher. For 10 years, she worked with elementary aged children both with and without learning, emotional and behavioral disabilities. After working with children and families in the school setting, she transitioned to a curriculum support specialist in early childhood focusing on literacy, math, art and technology. Lisa personally enjoys art and children’s literature therefore she was thrilled to earn her master’s degree in Creative Arts in Learning to share that joy in the classroom.
