Community Invited to Join Katy ISD for Dedication of Jeanne Coleman Student Support Annex  

KATY [September 9, 2019] –  Katy Independent School District’s Student Support Annex will be formally dedicated to living legacy, Jeanne Coleman.  The annex, formerly known as “Creech University,” as it served as a temporary campus for displaced Creek Elementary students and staff after Hurricane Harvey, will house several special education-related services as well as the District’s Early Childhood Testing, the Work-based Learning Program, Vision Impaired and Braille staff among other resources and staff members.

Jeanne Coleman is well known for her passion and leadership skills.  Prior to joining Katy ISD, she began her educational career as a speech-language pathologist and worked for 13 years at two different school districts.  She was joined the District in 1998, where she worked as a speech-language pathologist at Nottingham Country Elementary (NCE).  A year later, Coleman was promoted to an instructional officer.  Her role soon expanded to include the provision of speech therapy services for secondary students at the Opportunity Awareness Center (OAC) and the Behavior Transition Program.  She also coordinated district-wide speech therapy, adapted physical education and related services for occupational therapy, physical therapy, music and art therapy.

Coleman retired in 2016 with 32 years of dedication and service to student and parents. She continues to advocate on behalf of children with special needs.
