Dr. Sasha Scott
Dr. Sasha Scott has an EDD in Organizational Leadership with an emphasis in Special Education from Grand Canyon University. Dr. Scott was in first grade when she was exposed to a peer who received special education services in the self-contained setting. Outside looking in people saw a helmet, drool, bib, and a nonverbal child. To Sasha, she saw a friend lit up the room with a smile. Sasha’s first-grade teacher always said she would become a special education teacher. And she was right. Dr. Scott continued working with students with disabilities in high school in the classroom.
