Lora Pershern
Hi my name is Lora Pershern and I teach Special Education at Mountain Iron-Buhl High School. I work with students in grades 7ththru 12thgrade. I have been teaching for 13 years, all of which have been in Special Education. I received my Bachelors of Science in Special Education from Minnesota State Moorhead receiving my teaching license in the area of Developmental Cognitive Disabilities (DCD) and Physical/Health Disabilities (PHD). I have since added on three more licensures in the areas of Specific Learning Disabilities (SLD), Emotional Behavioral Disorders (EBD), and Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). I am currently working on my master’s degree in the area of Secondary Special Education and Transition. I am passionate about teaching and knew in middle school I would be a teacher. I choose Special Education because of my brother who received Special Education services throughout his schooling and the impact I saw his teachers have on him. All I can hope is I am having that similar impact on my own students. Besides teaching at Mountain Iron-Buhl, I also run the after school homework help program on certain days of the week.
