Mallory is a first year teacher in our high school program.  She completed her student teaching at Key Center during the 2021-2022 school year.  We were lucky to have her return in a teaching position this year!  Mallory worked four years as a Registered Behavior Technician prior to attending graduate school at George Mason University.  She appreciates the relationships that she has built at Key Center.  Mallory notes that staff are friendly, supportive and team-oriented.  When asked about working at Key Center, she stated "You don't find this kind of friendly, social environment at many schools.  I love it!"
