Sarah (Gorsky) King is a doctoral student in the Department of Special Education at The University of Texas at Austin. She is from Dallas, TX, and is a graduate of Southern Methodist University (B.A. in English Literature and Elementary Education) and The University of Texas at Austin (M.Ed. in Special Education-Learning Disabilities and Behavioral Disorders). Following graduation, she taught special education at the elementary level in both Downtown Dallas and East Austin. She has experience teaching students with a range of disabilities and provided support in various educational settings (e.g., inclusive, self-contained, resource, and homebound). Her research interests include mathematics interventions for emergent bilingual students with learning disabilities in mathematics or mathematics difficulties, supporting educators in the implementation of evidence-based practices through utilization of the data-based individualization framework, and the integration of culturally responsive pedagogy and practice within special education. In addition to her research, Sarah is currently working toward becoming a Board Certified Advocate in Special Education and hopes to be able to support parents and students as they navigate the special education process.
