Special Education Director

My name is Mary Ellen Knight.
It is my pleasure to serve Winnsboro ISD as the Special Education Director. I had a great start to my education career here at WISD in 1999. I taught special education at Memorial Middle School until 2006. Once I completed my first Master of Science degree in Special Education, Rains ISD hired me as an Educational Diagnostician. In 2013 Rains ISD made me their Special Education Director. While at Rains ISD, I obtained a Master of Science in Counseling, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, as well. When WISD decided to withdraw from the Shared Services Arrangement in 2015, I was offered an opportunity to come home to WISD and become the Special Education Director.  Our department is growing, and we strive to provide a superior service to Winnsboro ISD.
