Debra Cahn's Information


Hello! My name is Debra Cahn and I am delighted to be the Special Education Campus Coordinator at Hyer.  My passion and calling is Special Education, so I am ecstatic about this year.  I have over 20 years’ experience in the field of Special Education.  My experience includes teaching K-9th Resource, a self-contained class for students with Autism and in a Fundamentals classroom.  I worked in Plano ISD as the SPED Team leader for an elementary school and for the summer ESY program.  I was fortunate to join Highland Park ISD three years ago.  

I graduated from Western Illinois University with a Bachelor’s degree in Special Education with endorsements in Learning Disabilities, Behavior Disorders and High-Risk Recreation.  My certifications include K-12 Special Education and English as a Second Language.  I am currently working on my Master's Degree in Special Education with a specialization in Autism studies.

Hyer is a phenomenal school with a wonderful environment for learning on all levels.  I believe that you will find that Hyer will give your child the opportunity to learn and grow intellectually, socially and emotionally, all in a safe environment. I feel so lucky to be working in such an exceptional school and district.
