Mrs. Joanne Winkler, M.Ed.
This journey through my professional career started in applied research in behavior through a replication project out of UCLA. For 10 years, I was working through the University of Houston as a Senior Behavior Therapist. That led to wanting to teach and advocate for our children with special needs in the public school setting. This year at Oakley marks my 11th year as an Applied Skills Teacher. I have been part of the amazing NCISD family for the last five years. I am a Mother, Wife, Advocate, and Teacher. My commitment to the students and their families challenges me and provides a sense of happiness.
I have a passion for rock collecting, clinical research, and helping others.
