The Academy

Mindy Steinlicht - Special Services

My name is Mindy Steinlicht and I was born and raised in Anaconda, MT. I am the second of eight children and learned at a very young age that I love teaching, coaching, and showing people how to do new things. I was 12 when my youngest sister was born with Down Syndrome and I began to work with and understand learning differences. I am married and my husband and I live in American Falls with our two dogs and two macaws. 

In 1991 I moved to Pocatello to attend ISU and earned my Bachelor of Elementary and Special Education in 1995 and my Master of Human Exceptionality in 1997. I taught at the high school in American Falls for 10 years. In 2007 I heard about The Academy through one of the founders who encouraged me to apply for a teaching position. It has been a wonderful experience working at The Academy which is an ideal environment for all learners.
