Hello! My name is Colleen M. Kugler. I am one of the district’s three In-Home / Parent Trainers. I’m looking forward to working hard to support you and your child and to provide resources and support.
I am originally from Long Island, NY. My husband and I moved to here from the Bronx, NY, 17 years ago. Since then we had two children, Matthew (11), and Amelia (13). I have been working in the field of special education for a total of 23 years. 21 of those years included working with children with Autism. My teaching career led me to Africa as a Peace Corps Volunteer, a Houston area private school, a PPCD program in the Bronx, NY, a middle school in Plano, and two elementary schools in Frisco. I have a Bachelor’s and a Master’s degree in Special Education. My career is my passion and I strive to make every day count. I am full of ideas and I LOVE to learn, to teach, and to be inspired.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions, concerns, needs, or ideas. I look forward to meeting you and your children and to building a relationship that will enrich our lives and create inspiration and HOPE!
Hello! My name is Kristin Foster and I am excited to be working as an In-Home / Parent Trainer again this year.
I am from Massachusetts, but I married a native Texan (& Aggie) more than 19 years ago and have loved it here! We have 3 sweet children, Nathan (16), Jamison (14), and Jillian (14).
I have a special place in my heart for children with special needs as my niece was diagnosed many years ago on the Autism spectrum and I have a personal experience and clearer understanding now about the challenges for families with children who have special needs.
My background includes working for The Massachusetts Society for The Prevention of Cruelty to Children as a counselor where I completed my Master’s degree in Educational Counseling / Marriage and Family Therapy. I have provided in-home family therapy / individual counseling to families following a crisis/hospitalization. I have been a Special Education Teacher for Frisco as well. I’ve been working as an In-Home / Parent Trainer for FISD for 9 years now. I believe in the power of family and strive to assist families in any way I can.
Hello! My name is Kimberly Goushey and I am so very excited to begin my sixth year as an In-Home/Parent Trainer with Frisco ISD.
I am originally from South Louisiana…what was intended to be a temporary move to North Texas for graduate school resulted in meeting my husband and happily planting our family’s roots in the Frisco area. Together, we have two children, Bella (11) and Brody (7).
I have served children with special needs and their families for the past 14 years through classroom instruction, consulting and In-Home / Parent Training. My professional career has been devoted to empowering those who are differently-abled… I feel quite blessed to spend each day doing what I love!
I am excited to meet each of you and share in your journey! Please contact me anytime if I can provide value for your family.
