       Hello! My name is Mrs. Vanessa Hatcher and I am a Life Skills Special Education teacher at CTMS.  I am originally from Pittsburgh, PA and moved to Texas September 2013 with my husband, Ryne, and our son Moses.  Our second son Miles was born here in Grapevine in 2016.  My undergraduate degrees  include a BM in Vocal Performance, and a BA in Communication Disorders from Baldwin Wallace University in Cleveland, OH.  I went on to graduate school at California University of Pennsylvania to obtain my M. Ed. in Special Education and Elementary Education.  In my professional career I have worked for Wesley Spectrum Services in PA, Autism Concepts Inc. in Southlake, TX, and Pittsburgh Opera Chorus.
