Hi!  My name is Lindsay Tsakistos and I'm one of the Physical/Health Disabilities teachers at Nellie Stone Johnson.  I am the case manager for students in grades 4-8th grade.  I love my job!

I have been a special education teacher since 1998.  My first two years of teaching were in Shakopee, and I've spent the rest of my career teaching in North Minneapolis.  I've taught at W. Harry Davis Academy (formerly known as West Central Academy) and Nellie Stone Johnson.

I feel fortunate to work with the students in our program.  They show examples of perseverance, determination, and strength every day.  Inclusion is a focus in our program; the students in our PHD program spend as much time learning with their peers as possible.  The result is better access to their grade level curriculum and genuine, authentic friendships.

I am married and have a young daughter who also make my life very rich.  My students hear a lot about both of them, so you probably will too!

Please feel free to contact me at any time.  I'd love to hear from you.
