Special Education

Bridget McFall

SPED Director

I enjoy every minute I spend with my students and work to help your child learn new skills and feel successful every day! I have over 20 years of experience in education. I spent my first-year teaching Kindergarten in China, many years teaching middle and high school Special Education and English Language Arts, a few years at The Pingree School as an Autism Specialist and three years as a grant writer. I am currently the Director of Special Education at Wasatch Peak Academy (since 2017) and serve on the Utah Charter Assistive Technology Study Team. When I am not in the classroom, I enjoy spending time with my husband Simon and two children Ava and Abraham. We often take adventures to explore the outdoors, travel, and have lots of fun along the way.
