Cindy Moses is the Director of Special Education for Region 9 ESC. Prior to joining Region 9 in January of 2015, she served as Director of Special Education for Wichita Falls ISD and Clay-Jack SSA, a cooperative of eight school districts. Cindy has just completed the presidential track cycle of TCASE, having the unique opportunity to serve as TCASE President for the 13-14 and 14-15 school years. She uses her experiences to provide trainings and technical assistance on the gamut of special education issues from legal issues, budgeting processes, compliance and performance monitoring, to instructional support, parent involvement and participation and child-centered decision making among many others. Her passion is to assist special education directors to not only be effective in their extremely complex and difficult role, but for them to feel satisfied and fulfilled with the work they do to serve students with disabilities. Cindy has a particular interest in supporting new directors to ensure a successful launch in this adventure and to guide them in avoiding some of the troublesome pitfalls.
