Greetings Arizona Fleming Families!
Hello, I am Ranjini Baratan, one of your Resource teachers. I come to AFE with 13 years of Special Education experience. This is my second year teaching at AFE. I have enjoyed working with the students, teachers, the amazing leadership team, and the positiive environment at Arizona Fleming.
Previously, I taught at the Deer Creek School District in Oklahona, as a PPCD teacher. Prior to that, I taught at Special Care, an Early Childhood/Early Intervention program. Perhaps, my blossoming as a teacher began there with it's unique inclusive classroom setting integrating children with special needs with their typical peers. One of my passions is to teach students of all abilities. I truly believe that I am fortunate to pusue a career that offers so much of joy and rewards.
I graduated with Honors from the University of Central Oklahoma with a Master of Education in Special Education.
My husband and I share two beautiful daughters, one of whom is a college graduate and the other who is in her final year of college. As a family, we enjoy art, music, and poetry; both as a talent as well as a passion. As an artist, I am actively involved in the vibrant Houston artist community at The Sawyer Yards.
I am very excited to be part of the learning community and I look forward to my second year teaching at Arizona Fleming!
