BIOGRAPHY                                                             AUDREY L. WUNDERLICH
Audrey L. Wunderlich, 33, was appointed Director of Special Education at Taylor Community School s in Kokomo, Indiana during March of 2014.

AWMrs. Wunderlich has been a proud Titan alumni and staff member most of her life. After graduating high school from Taylor with honors in 1999 she attended Indiana University as an Applied Health Sciences major, but worked as a substitute teacher for the corporation as her schedule allowed. These interactions with students and staff, as well as classroom experiences, enabled Mrs. Wunderlich to unlock her true passion and calling as an educator, so she changed majors and entered the IU School of Education. During her time at Indiana University she was a member of Kappa Delta Pi, an education honor society, and graduated in December 2003 with a degree in elementary and middle school science/social studies education.

Mrs. Wunderlich began her teaching career at Taylor Middle School in August 2003 as a seventh grade teacher. In this capacity she worked on student accountability teams and sponsored academic clubs and activities. During her first few years of teaching, Mrs. Wunderlich discovered her forte was in the area of special education, so she began post-graduate work at Indiana Wesleyan University, completing her mild interventions licensure in December 2006.

After a few years at Taylor Middle School, Mrs. Wunderlich transferred to a fourth grade special education position at Taylor Intermediate School. There she served as the teacher representative for the PTA, as well as co-chairing committees for Response to Intervention and Positive Behavior Supports. In 2010 Mrs. Wunderlich started splitting her instructional day as both special education teacher and coordinator of special education for the district.

After ten years of classroom teaching, Mrs. Wunderlich accepted the full-time position of Special Education Director for Taylor Community Schools. Her participation in the Kokomo Area Special Education Cooperative (KASEC), her membership with the Indiana Council of Administrators of Special Education (ICASE), as well as her strengths in interpersonal communication, organization, and data analysis will help Mrs. Wunderlich forge partnerships with the corporation’s special education teachers, students, and families to provide an exceptional educational experience within the district that has been her “home” for many years. Her goals include, but are not limited to: continuing compliance with all state and federal special education indicators, implementation of K-12 inclusionary practices, making data-driven and best practice decisions to maximize student learning, and building relationships with parents and community members to better the special education department at Taylor Community Schools.

Mrs. Wunderlich has been happily married to her college sweetheart for eleven years. They have one son, who is a first grader at Taylor Elementary School. In her free time, Mrs. Wunderlich enjoys spending time with her family, traveling, and watching her son’s baseball and soccer games.
